National Volunteer Week (NVW) is held to celebrate and acknowledge the generous contribution of our volunteers.

The theme for National Volunteer Week in 2019 is “Making a world of difference”.

From 20–26 May 2019, thousands of events will be held across the country to say thank you to the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time.

The week-long celebration includes breakfasts, morning/afternoon teas, and luncheons, as well as open days, award ceremonies, picnics, forums and training sessions.

Wilcannia Forbes Council of the St Vincent de Paul Society, are proud to acknowledge the valuable contribution of their wonderful volunteers make in delivery of services to the community.
