Each year more than 2.4 million people volunteer in their local communities throughout NSW – in fact across Australia one in every three people volunteer their time. They all do so much, for so many people, without asking for anything in return. But we can give something very special back – and that’s why The Centre for Volunteering holds the NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards each year.
