National Volunteers Week

Join us for National Volunteer Week (18 to 24 May), the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.

Now more than ever it’s important to recognise and thank our volunteers, so this year we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of our usual face to face events we’ll be thanking our volunteers virtually.

City of Melbourne is hosting two virtual events, with much more happening during the week thanks to our event partners.

Prepare to be entertained with music, comedy and conversation as we thank the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time for our community.
