Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program

  • June 12, 2019

The Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program celebrates all volunteers – from students selflessly working with charities to veterans who’ve dedicated decades of their lives to causes close to their heart.

There are four categories open for nominations:

  • People with a lifetime of volunteering experience – over 40 years
  • People with over 25 years of volunteering experience
  • Significant volunteering at any age
  • Student volunteering.

Since the program launched in 2015, 28,600 volunteers have been recognised for their contribution to NSW communities.

In NSW, more than 2.1 million people volunteer, contributing a combined 240 million hours of their time each year, valued at $5 billion to local communities.

Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward said volunteers are the backbone of our society.

“It’s so important for all of us to acknowledge this invaluable work, and I urge all NSW residents to nominate someone who’s making a difference,” Mr Ward said.

The Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program is part of the NSW Government’s Volunteering Strategy 2016-2020.

Nominations close 27 September 2019 for the adult categories and 30 September 2019 for the student category.

Nominations are now OPEN for the 2019 Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program.
