National Volunteer Week

Let's thank each and every volunteer around the country for their commitment and service!

National Volunteer Week is an annual celebration 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.

Volunteering Queensland is also excited to announce the new theme: Making a world of difference.

This years’ theme highlights the significant impact of volunteers.
