Media Release 11 July 2023

If you know someone who gives their time as a volunteer and has made a difference in our community, don’t let their efforts go unrecognised.

Nominations are now open for the City of South Perth’s 2023 Volunteer of the Year Awards.

The annual awards acknowledge the vital role that volunteers play in the community and celebrate outstanding individuals for their contributions to the City of South Perth community.

Volunteers who live in the City of South Perth or those who live outside the City’s boundaries but volunteer within the City are eligible.

Nominees from previous years are very welcome to be nominated again. 

City of South Perth Mayor, Greg Milner encouraged nominations for this year’s awards, saying volunteers were part of the heart and soul of the City of South Perth and our thriving community.

“These selfless individuals contribute so much to our community; their efforts are immeasurable. Volunteers not only help to build strong and resilient communities, they help to combat isolation and loneliness and increase inclusion and community participation,” he said.

“Last year’s nominees and winners were an incredibly dedicated group of volunteers and I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know the 2023 nominees.” 

The City’s Volunteer of the Year Award categories are:

  • Junior Volunteer - under 18 years
