Volunteer awards

The Banyule Volunteer Awards recognise and honour outstanding individuals and groups who have contributed significantly to the development of their organisation, the local community and have had a positive impact on the quality of life of our residents.

National Volunteer Week is when we acknowledge and celebrate the wonderful ways volunteers enrich our community. This year's theme is 'Changing communities, changing lives', and it couldn't be more appropriate given the current health crisis.

Normally, we would hold the Banyule Volunteer Awards during this week to recognise outstanding individuals and groups who have contributed to the development of their organisation, the local community and have had a positive impact on the quality of life of our residents.

However, due to the restrictions in place to help minimise the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed the awards. We look forward to honouring our volunteers in the near future.
