Brighton Community Volunteer Awards nominations open

by Brighton Council

Know a fantastic, hard working volunteer in our area? Nomina­tions are now open for the Brigh­ton Council Community Volunteer Awards. If you know someone who has contributed to making our community a better place, nominate them for a Brighton Council Community Award. This is a chance to recognise and honour individuals or groups who are making an outstanding contribu­tion to communities and groups in the Brighton Council area.

This year the award categories are:

  • Citizen (Volunteer) of the Year Award
  • Young Citizen (Volunteer) Award (up to 25 years of age at 31 May 2024)
  • Community Initiative/Event of the Year Award.

The awards will be presented by Mayor Leigh Gray during National Volunteer Week, which runs from 20-26 May, 2024. National Vol­unteer Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteer­ing. The purpose of the week is to highlight the important role volunteers in our community play. It also aims to encourage people not currently volunteering to give it a go. The theme for National Volunteer Week 2024 is ‘Some­thing for Everyone’. This theme was chosen to show that there’s a place for everyone in the world of volunteering, no matter the cause or commitment.

Nominations close 29 April 2024. For more information or to submit a nomination visit: https://www. brighton.tas.gov.au/community/brighton-council-community-vol­unteer-awards.
