National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration in Australia to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. From 20–26 May 2019, 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.

The theme for National Volunteer Week Australia 2019 is: 'Making a world of difference'. For more information visit the official Volunteering Australia website here.
