In the lead up to the internationally celebrated volunteer day, Volunteering WA hosts a garden party at Government House for over 500 volunteers. This is a beautiful event that allows volunteers to connect with each other, and different organisations. Tickets go on sale in September each year. Thank you to our event partners for helping to make this event possible.
International Volunteer Day
International Volunteer Day (IVD), mandated by the UN General Assembly, is held each year on 5 December across the world and recognises the outstanding contribution that volunteers make in their communities.
With over 600,000 volunteers in Western Australia International Volunteer Day is a day for mass celebration. Volunteer Involving Organisations (VIOs) celebrate the contributions of thousands of volunteers who support their programs and services to the community.
