National Volunteer Week 2020

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. At this uncertain time we feel that it is more important than ever to recognise and acknowledge Australia’s volunteers.

The dates for National Volunteer Week 2020 are Monday 18 May – Sunday 24 May 2020 with the theme “Changing Communities. Changing Lives”.

We understand that the many events that are usually held during National Volunteer Week will be postponed or cancelled, however we encourage all organisations who wish to thank their volunteers to consider moving their events to an online format or acknowledge volunteers in different ways through social media or other digital formats.

Below we have provided ideas, inspiration and tips to celebrate National Volunteer Week in 2020. We continue to sell thank you gifts via our online shop, provide resources for the week and spread the message that volunteers around Australia really are Changing Communities. Changing Lives.

Please consider celebrating and appreciating the volunteers at your Club!

We invite you to put your hand up and thank all the volunteers by waving a special smile of appreciation from your own home. Upload your wave photo to social media and share using the hashtags #NVW2020 and #waveforvolunteers, and tag Volunteering Australia.
