National Volunteer Week 2020

Thank you to our 1,783 volunteers and volunteer managers, who work tirelessly to support our communities during what has been an extraordinarily challenging year for all Australians.

Our volunteers cannot attend our usual National Volunteer Week celebration events this year due to COVID-19 restrictions; however our Volunteer Managers have gone above and beyond to create innovative ways for our volunteer communities to stay connected with each other, and for us to say thank you while we are apart. Activities vary ranging from invitations to virtual morning teas, staying connected with e-news updates and receiving surprise Appreciation Packs.

We are privileged to have a number of long serving volunteers, the average length of time our volunteers are with us is just over seven years.

Our volunteers include Small business owners, tertiary students, home carers, police officers, teachers, managers, engineers, nurses, counsellors and retirees make up our number. Volunteers are matched to services that draw on their diverse range of skills and interests. Volunteer activities include Administration support, Courtesy Car, Dog Therapy, Eucharistic Ministry, Greeters / enquiry desk support, Hospitality, Library Trolley, Maintenance, Supply, Ward patient support and Biographers…

We thank our volunteers for their passion, commitment and dedication, and encourage you to read their stories and find out what makes them so special.
