Established in 1989, National Volunteer Week (NVW) is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia. It provides an opportunity to highlight the role of volunteers in society and say thank you to more than 6 million Australian volunteers, including 1.2 million Queenslanders who volunteer.

The theme for NVW is – Give Happy, Live Happy. Research tells us volunteers are happier, healthier and even sleep better than those who don’t volunteer. So, let’s make Australia the happiest place on earth together.
