National Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week (18 to 24 May 2020) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. This year’s theme is: Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
To acknowledge the efforts of volunteers who support the local community, the City of Bayswater is offering a small grant to encourage, and assist local community organisations to recognise their volunteers in line with National Volunteer Week
For more information on the Volunteer Recognition Grant, including details on how to apply, visit the Volunteer Recognition Grant page.
Make a difference in your community
Volunteers are a vital part of any community, selflessly giving their time to help make the places they live better for everyone.
Not only can you make a positive difference in the lives of others by becoming a volunteer, you can also make a positive difference in your own life. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, give you a new purpose, add to your CV, gain new skills or experience and help you connect with your community.
