VOLUNTEERS will be in the spotlight next week as the City of Wanneroo celebrates National Volunteer Week.

Hundreds of volunteers actively support the City in areas such as community, conservation, culture, heritage and emergency services.

Each year, the City hosts appreciation dinners to thank its volunteers and there was a function for community service and conservation volunteers in March.

Functions for emergency services volunteers are planned in June and July, and for heritage and library volunteers in September.

“Our volunteers give their time so selflessly and are integral to the community spirit,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

The volunteer resource centre at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre provides information about volunteer roles available both within the City and through other local community organisations.

The centre also acts as an advisory service to not-for-profit organisations wanting to learn more about making the most of the services of volunteers.

For more information, visit the centre between 9am and 1pm Monday to Friday, call 9405 5935 or visit wanneroo.wa.gov.au/volunteers.

National Volunteer Week will be celebrated across Australia from May 21 to 27.
