How are the NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards regions determined?

The State has been divided into 20 regions which comprise of:

  • 9 Sydney Regions*
  • 11 Country Regions*

* Regions have been based on geography and population size. The Centre has structured these regions so that there is a substantial population in each and some natural synergies between the local government areas in each region.
