The WA Volunteer Service Awards acknowledges volunteers for their contributions to making our communities a better place.

Last month, the State Government announced the expansion of the Awards program to recognise and celebrate more volunteers.

Nominations for the WA Volunteers Service Awards can now be made in the following years of service categories:  5-9 years; 10-19 years; 20-29 years; 30-39 years; 40-49 years; 50-59 years and a Lifetime of voluntary service (60 years and over).

The categories were expanded to better capture the diverse volunteering activity across the State, including contributions by younger volunteers. The changes also include a more streamlined nomination process and the option to self-nominate.

The awards are a key initiative by the State Government to demonstrate its support and recognition of volunteers. To date, 2,331 Western Australian volunteers have been honoured through the awards program.

The awards will be presented during National Volunteer Week, which takes place between Monday, 20 to Sunday, 26 May 2024.

Nominations for the 2024 WA Volunteer Service Awards are now open until 5pm Thursday, 29 February 2024. For more information and to nominate, please visit
