About National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is the largest annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers

The theme Give Happy, Live Happy celebrates and explores the research that shows volunteers live happier and healthier lives.

This Give Happy, Live Happy web portal has everything you need to celebrate volunteering including merchandise and resources all aimed at acknowledging the hard work of volunteers and to encourage others to volunteer, so they too can Give Happy, Live Happy.

We encourage all volunteers, leaders of volunteers, volunteer-involving organisations, business, academia and government to take part in the celebrations from 8-14 May 2017.



Keep an eye on this web portal and social media platforms #GiveHappyLiveHappy #NVW2017 to stay up-to-date.
