About National Volunteer Week

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

From 18–24 May 2020, 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 excited to announce the new theme: Changing Communities. Changing Lives.

This years’ theme highlights the significant life-changing impact of volunteering. This year we celebrate the 31st anniversary of National Volunteer Week.

This web portal has everything you need to celebrate National Volunteer Week, including resources all aimed at acknowledging the hard work of volunteers and to encourage others to get involved in volunteering.
