Do you know a volunteer that deserves some well-earned recognition?

The Premier's Volunteer Recognition Program recognises the significant contribution that volunteers make to the community state-wide. In NSW alone, over 2 million individuals volunteer in their local community. Investing their time, skills and energy into a community organisation or project, the selfless achievements of volunteers are often taken for granted. Take this opportunity to nominate a volunteer for the recognition they deserve!

Local members of Parliament will present adult recognition certificates in National Volunteer Week from 11-15 May 2015.

There are three Adult Volunteering Recognition categories:

Project volunteering is episodic and short term volunteering that covers the majority of volunteer endeavour in the community.

Long term volunteering recognises those individuals that have made a significant contribution by volunteering over an extended period of 25 years or more.

Lifelong volunteering for those in the rarest category of having achieved a life time of service as a volunteer this category marks the accomplishments of individuals with over 40 years volunteering experience.

Student recognition nominations open in term 2, 2015.
