About National Volunteer Week

Volunteering Queensland is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. At this uncertain time we feel that it's more important than ever to acknowledge volunteers. National Volunteer Week is going ahead, however it is different this year with volunteer-involving organisations embracing technology and hosting online activities and events that recognise their volunteers. Follow the activities via #NVW2020.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.

From 18 – 24 May 2020, we encourage you to say thank you to 714,138 Queenslanders who volunteer, and the 6 million volunteers across Australia.

This year's theme is Changing Communities. Changing Lives. 

This website has everything you need to celebrate NVW digitally, including ideas, inspiration and resources.
