National Volunteer Week - 2022

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering and will be held on 16 – 22 May 2022.

We are pleased to announce the theme for National Volunteer Week 2022 is Better Together.

Volunteering brings people together; it builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.

National Volunteer Week is a chance for all of us to celebrate and recognise the vital work of volunteers and to say thank you.

Together, through volunteering, we are changing communities for the better. We are, Better Together.

The Wave Your Appreciation campaign is back. How will you Wave Your Appreciation for Volunteers?

You are invited to put your hand up and thank the millions of volunteers around Australia.

You can wave your appreciation for volunteers by adding a smiley face on your hand and uploading your photo to social media with #WaveForVolunteers and #NVW2022.  

We will be featuring your waves throughout National Volunteer Week.
