Give a little, change a lot

Our National Volunteer Week morning tea at our Subiaco office

Last financial year, 1831 volunteers contributed 72,183 hours across all areas of our work.

Through donating their time, energy and skills, our volunteers enhance, enrich and extend the programs and services offered by Cancer Council WA and during National Volunteer Week (21-27 May), we honoured their amazing contribution.

This year's National Volunteer Week theme "Give a little. Change a lot" highlighted Australia's 6 million volunteers who make a profound impact in their communities and on society, through giving a little time.

Increasingly, volunteering is being understood as one of the enduring social, cultural and economic values of our society. NVW is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to the extraordinary contribution of volunteers across the nation, and especially those who volunteer with us here at CCWA.

During the week, we caught up with four of our amazing volunteers to find out what inspired them to join our team. Hear what they had to say in the video below.

We also celebrated with some of our ongoing volunteers by hosting morning teas at Cancer Council offices and support centres throughout the state.

Volunteers are very much part of our team, working to reduce the impact of cancer and we thank them sincerely for their work, support, commitment, generosity and goodwill.

Want to volunteer?

If you have time to spare, we are currently recruiting amazing volunteers to help with Australia's biggest fundraising campaign for cancer research - Daffodil Day.

We would love your help, particularly on Daffodil Day which is Friday 24 August.
