National Volunteer Week


National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. 

From 21–27 May 2018, thousands of events will be held across the country to say thank you to the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time. The week-long celebration will include breakfasts, morning/afternoon teas, and luncheons, as well as open days, award ceremonies, picnics, forums and training sessions.

Volunteering Australia is excited to announce our new National Volunteer Week theme: Give a little. Change a lot.

This year’s theme represents the millions of volunteers who make a profound impact in their communities and on society, through giving a little time.

The official hashtag for National Volunteer Week is #NVW2018
