This week we celebrate and acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.

At Centacare, more than 50 volunteers pitch in to help deliver our services every year.

Today marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week, which runs from 9-15 May. This year’s theme, Give Happy, Live Happy, continues to highlight and explore the research that shows volunteers live happier and healthier lives.

This week we will introduce you to some of the faces who volunteer their time and energy for Centacare.

Their tireless efforts across a variety of roles, from cooking to craft, gardening and supporting children and young families, will be formally acknowledged tomorrow at our Annual Volunteers’ Dinner at the Buckingham Arms Hotel, Gilberton.

For more information about #NVW2016, keep an eye on this website and our own social media and web platforms.

Get involved and help us say thank you to our volunteers!
