What are the Tasmanian Volunteering Awards?

Tasmanians give 7.1 million hours of their time to the community each year.

Volunteering influences economic activity with the total social, economic, cultural value of volunteering in Tasmania being estimated at $4.9 billion. In fact, many of the opportunities, assistance, events, and services Tasmanians have access to would not be possible without the support of unpaid volunteer hours.

The Tasmanian Volunteering Awards honour those individuals and groups that donate time to the community without financial gain; and are Tasmania’s only state-wide volunteer recognition program.
