Join us for National Volunteer Week!

National Volunteer Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering. This special event provides an opportunity to highlight the important role of volunteers in our community and invites people not currently volunteering to give it a go.

Every year during National Volunteer Week, VolunteeringACT hosts two key events to promote volunteering, connect the Canberra community to volunteer involving organisations and engage the volunteering sector to build knowledge and provide education, best practice and guidance to ensure volunteering is safe, inclusive and accessible.

VolunteeringACT is committed to providing accessible events, if you have specific accessibility requests or want to find out about accessible parking and access, please contact us on 02 6251 4060 or Note both of these events are fully accessible, with wheelchair accessible venues, accessible parking and auslan interpreters.

The Expo is held every year to connect the Canberra community to volunteering opportunities and volunteer involving organisations in the Canberra Region. There are a wide and diverse range of organisations exhibiting, with sectors such as environment, sport, education, science, arts, tourism, emergency response and more! 

The Expo is a wonderful place to start your volunteering journey and to learn more about how you can get involved in supporting the community and find the perfect role for you. 

Entry is free for visitors, and there will be food, coffee, music and more!
