NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards
The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards is an annual program established in 2007 by The Centre for Volunteering to recognise the outstanding efforts of volunteers in NSW, and to promote the importance of volunteering to the community. In 2019 the Awards program will recognise more than 120,000 volunteers across NSW in front of guests, media, family and friends.
The Awards are a celebration of the great Australian tradition of quietly lending a hand without asking for anything in return. They provide a unique platform for our volunteers to share their remarkable stories and for the state to formally recognise their efforts. By doing so, we send a powerful message about the value of volunteering and the contribution of our 2.1 million volunteers to help build strong, healthy and well-connected communities.
