Save the date and join us for Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering, National Volunteer Week, from 16-22 May 2022.
This year’s theme, Better Together acknowledges that volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.
National Volunteer Week is a chance for all of us to celebrate, appreciate and recognise the vital work of volunteers in Australia. The value of volunteering is immense and irreplaceable.
