National Volunteer Week 2022 - Wrap Up

Celebrated across the country from 16 to 22 May, National Volunteer Week is Australia's largest celebration of volunteers and we were thankful to see hundreds (if not thousands) of organisations and community groups coming together to recognise and celebrate volunteering in Western Australia.

This year's theme was Better Together, which focused on how volunteering brings people together in building communities and creating a better society for everyone.

Thank you to everyone for celebrating and sharing volunteerism on social media, in person and virtually.
