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.

1. Premier’s Certificate of Recognition for outstanding volunteer service

Do your volunteers go above and beyond? Are you wondering how to let them know they are appreciated?

You can thank, recognise and celebrate your volunteers by nominating them to receive the Premier’s Certificate of Recognition for outstanding volunteer service.

This year we are celebrating 20 years of the certificate program – your volunteers have the chance to be part of history and join the thousands of volunteers recognised by the Premier since 2002.

South Australian based organisations and community groups are encouraged to nominate an individual or group of volunteers to receive this prestigious award, which recognises and rewards excellence and significant achievements.

Nominations for 2022 are now closed.
