Volunteers give their time, effort and skills to better our society. The contribution of over 3 million Queensland volunteers (75% of adults) has provided unparalleled assistance to people and causes across our beautiful state.

Every single volunteer, whether in a formal or informal setting deserves thanks from the Queensland Community, and it is the Queensland Volunteering Awards that highlight the people behind this immense positive wave which embodies the spirit of mateship and togetherness.
