Volunteer South West celebrates volunteers at various events throughout the year. National Volunteer Week in May is an excuse for volunteers to come together and ‘Celebrate the Power of Volunteering’. In April, a small grant from the Office of Multicultural Interests allowed volunteers who work within multicultural communities to be recognised.

ABS 2010 statistics show that over 41% of people outside of cities volunteer in comparison with 34% in capital cities. Women (38%) out-volunteer men (34%) and people in the 45 – 54 age group and couples with children aged 5 – 17 had the highest participation rates, many in sport and recreation.
