National Volunteers Week

volunteer week

Volunteers play an integral role in our shire, lending their time and talents, for no reward or remuneration, to support, encourage and enhance the lives of others in the community.

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.

To pay tribute to all volunteers who help make our community stronger, the Glenelg Shire hosts Volunteer Recognition Receptions during National Volunteer Week.
