Volunteers Day and Thank You event

Volunteers Day

The South Australian Government values the significant contribution made by volunteers across the State. In recognition of this enormous effort, it has proclaimed a special day in their honour. Volunteers Day is now celebrated on the Queen's Birthday long weekend every year.

Each year, the Department of Human Services hosts a thank you event for volunteers, coinciding with Volunteers Day, to celebrate and thank our state's volunteers. Through this event, we recognise and celebrate the many and varied ways that South Australia's 900,000 volunteers dedicate their time to help others and give back to our community, from patrolling beaches and helping in emergencies, to delivering food and providing companionship to the elderly and isolated.
