National Volunteer Week celebrating generosity of spirit
The last two weeks have seen celebrations across the country for both National Volunteer Week and Reconciliation Week. It’s a time to highlight the efforts and importance of volunteers and volunteerism, and a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements.
For ICV and our volunteers, it’s really a celebration of Reconciliation in action. Without the support of our volunteers, none of our work would be possible.
ICV held events in most offices - morning and afternoon teas, Board Room lunches and BBQs in the park - kicking off the week in Broome and Darwin, and ending with celebrations in Canberra and Brisbane.
ICV staff and volunteers across Australia celebrated the impact volunteers have in the different communities we work with.
Our volunteers work in the cities, rural and remote areas, and give their time - worth millions of dollars every year - freely because they appreciate what they are doing is contributing to a better future. And because they love the people and communities they are working with.
Thank you to all our amazing volunteers – your dedication, skills and enthusiasm is priceless.
