The City honours volunteers for National Volunteers Week

This week is National Volunteers Week, a celebration of all the people who selflessly give their time and skills to benefit their community.

The theme of this year’s celebrations is ‘Something for Everyone,’ highlighting the breadth of volunteering opportunities available to suit different skills and interests. Whether you’re passionate about environmental causes, sport, community welfare or something else, there’s a role for everyone.

Currently, there are many volunteers working across the City of Subiaco to help make it an incredible place to live, work and visit.

The City has over 40 volunteers working in the library, museum, Lords gym, the youth council, our green spaces and our positive aging program.

Mayor David McMullen said that this year’s National Volunteers Week is a celebration of the essential role of volunteers.

“It is a chance to recognise the valuable skills and life experience that volunteers bring to the City of Subiaco,” he said.

“Volunteers play a vital role in community life; some organisations could not function without them. And for the people who volunteer their time, it is a way to 'act, belong and commit'. I encourage anyone who has ever thought of volunteering to step forward and give it a go.”

This week, City volunteers will receive a special gift in recognition of their significant contributions. A larger celebration will also take place at the end of the year in line with National Volunteer Day, when the awards for Volunteer of the Year will be announced.
