Volunteering Australia is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation closely. At this uncertain time we feel that it is more important than ever to recognise and acknowledge Australia’s volunteers and therefore National Volunteer Week 2020 will be held as scheduled on Monday 18 May – Sunday 24″ May 2020, but with online activities and events, instead of in person ones.
We understand that the many events that are usually held during National Volunteer Week will be postponed or cancelled, however we encourage all organisations who wish to thank their volunteers to consider moving their events to an online format or acknowledge volunteers in different ways through social media or other digital formats.
Volunteering Australia will be working to provide ideas, inspiration and a platform to celebrate National Volunteer Week in 2020. We will continue to sell thank you gifts via our online shop, provide resources for the week and spread the message that volunteers around Australia really are Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
