Today sees the start of National Volunteer Week. Over this week, we’ll share stories of volunteering from around Uniting, highlighting the different experiences of our volunteers and the many reasons people give their time to support others.

 We’re starting this week with a message from our Chief Executive Officer Paul Linossier to all our volunteers:

 ‘Every day, volunteers generously give time to support the programs and services of Uniting. You share your skills and passions within the communities you care about to make a real difference in people’s lives.

 This week we recognise and celebrate your contributions and the over 3000 other individuals who make it possible for Uniting to deliver the comprehensive level of support and services that we do. Your support is truly appreciated.

 In standing with those who live life at the margins, by strengthening our communities and by speaking out, you help to create a more just society.’
