Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
National Volunteer Week (18-24 May 2020) is celebrated every year to recognise and acknowledge volunteers for their contributions to the community.
This year is more important than ever to celebrate volunteers, who are pivotal in changing communities and changing the lives of many during difficult times.
