National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration for volunteers. Starting from Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd May, NVW in Victoria will celebrate the significant contribution of Victoria’s 2.3 million volunteers. This year, the theme for National Volunteer Week is Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine. acknowledging the role of the volunteering sector during these times.

To mark this year’s celebrations, we are running an exclusive member-only event on 20th May at the Melbourne Museum. The event will explore volunteering in the post-COVID world with keynote, Susan Pascoe AM. More details and how to register here.

Volunteer-involving organisations, Mayors of local councils and Members of Parliament can also take part in the celebrations with us by participating in our #Thankyou social media campaign. More details here.

volunteering management activity
The Australian Government is inviting state and territory volunteering peak bodies via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Families and Communities Program – Volunteer Management Activity 2021–2026.

From 1 July 2021, the Australian Government will distribute up to $33.5 million (excluding GST) over 5 years under the new Volunteer Management Activity.

Volunteering Peak Bodies will develop and implement strategies to build the capacity of Volunteer Involving Organisations (VIOs), through online volunteer management services and breaking down barriers to volunteering for identified priority groups. Volunteer Peak Bodies will consult and partner with relevant local organisations to develop and deliver the Volunteer Management Activity.
