Volunteering certificates

Recognising volunteers’ contribution is important not only to help retain their services but also to show appreciation for their personal dedication. Two certificate programs are available for recognising your volunteers' contribution.

2. South Australian volunteer certificate of appreciation

South-Australian-based organisations or community groups can order formal South Australian volunteer certificates of appreciation from us, to acknowledge their volunteers — this could be for number of hours contributed, achieving a particular outcome, or recognition of service.

Certificates can be ordered and presented by organisations to their volunteers at any time.

Contact us to order certificates.
