Thanking our volunteers

Volunteers are key people in a vibrant, connected and thriving society. At Anglicare NT, our volunteers support others in the community by delivering Meals on Wheels, helping at our opportunity shop and visiting older people through the Community Visitors Scheme.

During National Volunteer Week (18 – 24 May), we celebrated the generous contribution of our volunteers – thanking them for their commitment and kind efforts that bring joy, connection and support to people across the Northern Territory.

With coronavirus restrictions easing across the Territory, Community Visitor Scheme volunteers were able to celebrate National Volunteer Week at the Darwin Ski Club. Her Honour the Honourable Vicki O’Halloran AO, Administrator of the Northern Territory, joined the group and awarded volunteers with certificates to recognise their volunteering efforts.

Volunteers with the Community Visitors Scheme support older people who may be lonely or socially isolated. Volunteers regularly catch up with older people and share conversations, news, fun activities and friendship.
