National Volunteer Week 9-15 May 2016

National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. With the theme Give Happy, Live Happy, introduced in 2015, we continue in 2016 to celebrate and explore the research that shows volunteers live happier and healthier lives.

Beyond Bank Australia is again partnering with Volunteering Australia for National Volunteer Week.

The Give Happy, Live Happy web portal has everything you need to celebrate volunteering including merchandise available for preorder and downloadable resources all aimed at acknowledging the hard work of volunteers and to encourage others to volunteer, so they too can Give Happy, Live Happy. To find out more visit
