Written by: The Hilltops Phoenix


Volunteers go above and beyond to keep our communities thriving. Now you are invited to recognise those volunteers and celebrate the importance of the work they do. If you know someone who deserves to be celebrated for their community service, make sure you nominate them before Friday, June 14 and spread the word that nominations are open. The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards are an annual program aimed at recognising the effort, dedication and community service of volunteers across the State.

This Awards program has grown to become one of the country’s largest celebrations in recognition of volunteers.

More than 133,000 nominees from over 500 organisations were recognised at State and Regional ceremonies last year.

All nominees must:

  • Have been involved during the 12 months (July 2023 to June 2024) with a legitimate not-for-profit organisation, community group, or other entity which engages volunteers in a safe and legal manner, such as schools or government agencies.
