Nominations have now closed for the 2018 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards.

Thank you to all who have taken the time to recognise and nominate volunteers.  Volunteers are the unsung heroes in all our communities – although they don’t seek recognition for all they do, they certainly deserve it!

Twenty regional ceremonies are being held across August and September to recognise every single volunteer nominated and award winners are being announced.  Regional award winners will be entered into the state final of the NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards, to be held in November.
