"Last year more than 100,000 volunteers were honoured at 21 ceremonies held throughout NSW and now we need your help to find 2017's nominees. Everyone nominated gets their moment in the spotlight where their efforts are recognised with a certificate and a ceremony in the company of other local volunteers and dignitaries. Don’t overlook individuals who help others outside of formal volunteering organisations and networks – they may not even consider themselves a volunteer – but if they are doing something for another person beyond their immediate family, then they are indeed a true volunteer."
The Awards are grouped into seven categories:
- Young- 24 years and under
- Adult – 25 to 64 years
- Senior – 65 years +
- Volunteer Team
- Excellence in Volunteer Management
- Corporate Volunteer (Individual)
- Corporate Volunteer Team
For more information and to start your nomination process go to The Centre for Volunteering website.
Nominations close on Friday 14th July 2017.
The Volunteer of the Year Awards were launched in 2007 by The Centre for Volunteering to recognise the outstanding efforts of the 2 million+ volunteers in NSW, and to promote the importance of volunteering to the community.
