The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards have grown to become one of the largest celebrations of volunteering across the country.

The Awards are now in their 16th year and celebrate the efforts of our state’s volunteers across seven different award categories. More than 3,000 special guests, families and friends attend ceremonies at 24 locations across regional and suburban centres to celebrate the regional winners of the volunteer awards.

Finalists will be invited to the Gala State Ceremony in Sydney to announce the final winners and overall NSW Volunteer of the Year.

More than 117,000 people from over 500 organisations were recognised in last years awards, with special messages of support received from the Prime Minister and the Governor of New South Wales.

Last year, the SWSLHD Palliative Care COVID19 volunteer team won the Volunteer Team of the Year award.

Have a special volunteer in your team you would like to recognise with an award? Nominations for the awards are now open.
