Nominations are open for the South Australian Volunteer Awards


The SA Volunteer Awards are our state’s most prestigious volunteering awards, and the search is on for our most inspiring volunteers and volunteering organisations. The awards recognise the invaluable work that volunteers, volunteer managers, community organisations and businesses contribute to our community.

Our State has amazing volunteers of all ages, but this year we’re also shining the spotlight on young volunteers with the new ‘Young Volunteer Award’ – to celebrate an excellent volunteer between the ages of 12 and 25.

You can nominate either yourself or someone else across the following categories:

The Joy Noble Medal

South Australia’s highest distinction for an individual volunteer.

‘The Andamooka’ Community Project Award

Awarded to a community, or group of volunteers.

The Young Volunteer Award

Honouring an impressive young volunteer.

The Excellence in Volunteer Management Award

Honours a volunteer manager for their outstanding contributions to the profession.

The Premier’s Award for Corporate Social Responsibility

Presented for the contribution of SA for-profit businesses to the community.

Awards will be presented at the South Australian Volunteer Awards event on 15 May 2023, more details to follow shortly.
