Nominations for the 2018 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards close this Friday so get your nominations in quickly.

Volunteers make a significant contribution to their communities and the best ones deserve to be lauded for their efforts. Every year The Centre for Volunteering acknowledges thousands of volunteers, volunteer managers, organisations and corporations across NSW who dedicate their time to making the world a better place through these awards.

This year for the first time as well as the main award categories, volunteers can be recognised with a Certificate of Recognition. Anyone nominated in this category will receive their special certificate at one of the 20 regional ceremonies.

The award categories are:

  • Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Adult Volunteer of the Year
  • Senior Volunteer of the Year
  • Corporate Volunteer of the Year (individual)
  • Corporate Volunteer Team of the Year
  • Excellence in Volunteer Management

Last year, the award for Excellence in Volunteer Management was awarded to Mary Leehane from Broken Hill Health Service who looked after pallliative care volunteers as part of her busy role.

Nominations close on Friday 13 July. For more information or to make a nomination, click here.
