The Department of Communities’ annual Thank a Volunteer Celebration Grants are now open!

The annual grants program provides funds to organisations and local communities to hold functions to celebrate and honour their volunteers.

Groups can receive up to $1,000.

Metropolitan areas will host events on International Volunteer Day on 5 December 2018. Regional areas can host events from International Volunteer Day or any day in the three months following.

The Shire of Kondinin were one group who received a grant last year for their Thank a Volunteer Day event. They hosted a sundowner which included an award ceremony where community groups and individuals were presented with awards for their volunteer contributions to the Shire of Kondinin.

The Town of Victoria Park celebrated their volunteers with a breakfast of champions ceremony. The Mayor and elected members personally thanked the volunteers for their commitment to the Town of Victoria Park at the free breakfast.
