SA Volunteer Awards

South Australian Volunteer Awards Now Closed for 2022


The South Australian Volunteer Awards recognise the invaluable work that volunteers, volunteer managers, community organisations and businesses contribute to the South Australian community.

Awards are presented in the following categories:

  • The Joy Noble Medal. South Australia’s highest distinction for an individual volunteer and is open to all individual volunteers across the State.
  • The Andamooka’ Community Project Award. Awarded to a community, or group of volunteers, which has undertaken a community project resulting in significant community benefit.
  • The Excellence in Volunteer Management Award. Offered in partnership with Volunteering SA&NT, this award recognises the dedication and commitment of volunteer managers who support and facilitate the engagement of volunteers.
  • The Premier’s Award for Corporate Social Responsibility. This award recognises the strong contribution the business sector makes to our communities such as through philanthropy, partnerships or releasing employees for volunteer service.

The 2022 awards will be presented at a special SA Volunteer Awards presentation in June.

Thank you to all who submitted nominations for the 2022 SA Volunteer Awards.
