Special Events & Training

Throughout the year, Volunteer South West implements various training opportunities for volunteers, coordinators of volunteers and the Not For Profit sector. Our training program the Volunteer Active Support Program (VAST), funded by Royalties for Regions, allows us to take training to volunteers in their own areas across the South West.

CEO Breakfasts and Workshops give managers a chance to acquaint themselves with chances in the Community Services Sector and liaise with other organisations.


Volunteer South West also run several big events each year for ‘Thank A Volunteer Day’, December 5 annually, and National Volunteer Week which is held in May- to appreciate and recognise the effort volunteers contribute to our communities and to support raising the profile of volunteering in Australia.


The Corporate Christmas Caring event is organised to help provide an opportunity for businesses to be involved in corporate volunteering.
