CPA celebrates National Volunteer Week 2022

CPA celebrates National Volunteer Week 2022
Posted on Tue 17 May 2022

This week it's National Volunteer Week, so what better time to celebrate the huge role our volunteers play in supporting our CPA community!

Celebrated between the 16th and 22nd of May, National Volunteer Week acknowledges the commitment and impact of volunteers – Volunteering Australia estimates that more than five million Australians were involved in formal volunteering last year.  

The 2022 theme is ‘Better Together’, acknowledging how volunteering brings people together, builds communities and creates a better society for everyone.
At Cerebral Palsy Alliance, our community is empowered and supported by almost 400 regular volunteers across NSW and ACT. 

Our volunteers have often gone above and beyond to support clients in difficult times, showing resilience and stepping up over the last two years of lockdowns and isolation to deliver hope and connection to people with disabilities.

We asked some of our CPA community why they love our volunteers – you can see their responses in this video. 

It’s been a landmark year for our volunteers, who took home numerous awards at the NSW Centre for Volunteering annual prizes over the last twelve months.

Aristocrat Technologies was acknowledged as NSW Corporate Volunteer of the Year for its long-standing support of CPA, while members of CPA’s volunteer team were finalists in the ‘Team of the Year’ and ‘Adult Volunteer of the Year’ categories. 

Thanks again to all our wonderful volunteers for all the incredible things you do!
