Volunteer Program of the Year Award
This Award aims to highlight the exceptional things that volunteering groups can do, and have achieved, across Tasmania. Organisations and volunteers, as well as members of the community, are encouraged to nominate their own volunteer group or volunteer-run program to recognise a volunteering group or program which has influenced their lives in a positive way.
The Volunteer Program of the Year Award was introduced in 2017 because sometimes there’s not just one volunteer making a significant impact – it can be a whole group that come together to make amazing things happen.

CatholicCare Tasmania is the primary social services agency of the Catholic Church across Tasmania. We deliver a wide range of services and support for individuals, families and communities. Our services are available to people of all backgrounds, beliefs and circumstances, and focus in particular on children and families.
CatholicCare Tasmania employ more than 450 staff across the State and offer a variety of programs and projects across key areas:
- Multicultural services
- Emergency Relief
As the Social Services agency of the Archdiocese of Hobart our values are informed by the rich teachings of the Catholic Church based in the Church’s understanding of Christian Anthropology. The Church’s social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living our lives amidst the challenges of modern society.
CatholicCare Tasmania relies on a range of dedicated volunteers that provide hours of invaluable services to clients in a variety of our programs. Without the volunteer support of people like you, who are able to enable and empower the programs to succeed, we would not be able to provide the inspiring and enduring difference to the lives of so many people into the future on our own.
