National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia's largest annual celebration of volunteers. From Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd May 2021, organisations around the country will celebrate the significant contribution of volunteers.
Around four out of five Western Australians aged 15 years and over volunteer each year, donating more than 315,000,000 hours – almost 16 hours a month – to the community.
To acknowledge volunteers in Western Australia, Communities delivers the WA Volunteer Service Awards to extraordinary people that have dedicated more than 25 years of service.
Volunteers receive a certificate from the Hon. Reece Whitby MLA, Minister for Volunteering, thanking them for their service.
