National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia, and provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in our communities and to say thank you to the more than 5 million Australians who volunteer.

 

Australian volunteers are essential to society, and many charities would struggle to survive without the support of their volunteers.

 

Australian volunteers contribute more than 700 million hours of community service to so many areas of society, including community health care, heritage and arts, environment conservation, emergency services, education, social justice and sports.

 

NVW provides a platform to pay tribute to these volunteers who donate their time and energy to help others.

 

The theme for National Volunteer Week, 9-15 May 2011 is...Inspiring the Volunteer in You

 

This theme really brings volunteering to the forefront and provides a focussed agenda for the volunteer sector. It will raise the profile of volunteering and highlight that volunteering, now, more than ever, is important to Australian society and the contribution of all volunteers must be recognised.

When:  09 May 2011 - 15 May 2011

Time:  All week!

Where:  Around Australia!
