Novocastrians have a great record of volunteering their time and effort to help out in our community.
Volunteers make an invaluable contribution and deserve to be recognised for the wonderful services they provide.
As the Federal Member for Newcastle, I have the pleasure of attending community events and meeting many of our fantastic, dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
I find that our volunteers are often the first to downplay the significance of their work, even though they play such a key role in so many of our community organisations.
With this in mind, I have established the Newcastle Volunteer Service Awards. These awards provide an opportunity to thank volunteers for their valuable contribution to our community.
If you know someone who deserves recognition for their volunteer service, please complete the nomination form linked below and return to my office.
