Volunteer of the Year Awards

The City of South Perth is aware of the vital role that volunteers play in the community and of the need to recognise and celebrate their efforts. These Awards aim to acknowledge outstanding volunteers for their individual efforts within our community.

Volunteers who live in the City of South Perth or volunteers 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. The awards are presented at an Awards Ceremony in December.
