Nominations will open soon for the 2019 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards!

The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards is an annual program launched in 2007 by The Centre for Volunteering to recognise the outstanding efforts of the 2 million+ volunteers in NSW, and to promote the importance of volunteering to the community.  The Awards are a celebration of the amazing commitment and achievements volunteers make in our communities and a chance for us to come together to give our thanks. The Awards acknowledge the efforts of thousands of volunteers, volunteer managers, volunteer involving organisations and corporates in bringing about social change through volunteering. In 2018, we recognised more than 110,000 volunteers across NSW and this year we hope to acknowledge even more.

The award categories for all volunteers are:

  • Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Adult Volunteer of the Year
  • Senior Volunteer of the Year
  • Volunteer Team of the Year
  • Corporate Volunteer of the Year (Individual)
  • Corporate Volunteer Team of the Year
  • Excellence in Volunteer Management


Further details will follow when nominations open.  Watch this space!
