National Volunteer Week 2023 

#NVW2023 | Monday 15 - Sunday 21 May 2023

National Volunteer Week is Australia's largest celebration of volunteers.

Each year, more than 520,000 Western Australians volunteer to make our state a great place to live. They generously give their time to make a difference in community organisations, groups, clubs and as individuals. National Volunteer Week gives us the opportunity to collectively recognise the importance of volunteers and the vital work they do selflessly in our communities.
