National Volunteer Week

16 May 2022

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering and will be held on 16 – 22 May 2022.

We are pleased to announce the theme for National Volunteer Week 2022 is Better Together.

Volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.

National Volunteer Week is a chance for all of us to celebrate and recognise the vital work of volunteers and to say thank you.

Together, through volunteering, we are changing communities for the better. We are, Better Together.

National Volunteer Week 2022 is proudly sponsored by Aon Australia and Streets, and we also acknowledge the support of The Department of Social Services.

Volunteers: Australia’s backbone in times of crisis
In honour of National Volunteer Week, Volunteering Australia has released a report providing evidence that volunteers are essential to Australia’s crisis resilience. The research examines the volume and breadth of volunteers playing crucial roles in communities during natural disasters and COVID-19 outbreaks.

With flooding, fires and the ongoing impacts of the pandemic, the past few years have undoubtably been tough for all Australians. Holding us up in these times of crisis are over one million volunteers supporting Australia’s crisis resilience, of which more than 400,000 work directly in emergency response and relief. Our nation’s volunteers are the country’s backbone during crisis and emergency.
