If you have ever thought about giving back to the community, next month’s Impact Volunteering Expo will tell you everything you need to know.
It’s a chance to connect with many not-for-profit community organisations and learn about the many ways you can make a difference through volunteering in Frankston City and the surrounding area. Volunteers make a valuable contribution to community life, and receive health and wellbeing benefits from their activities.
The 2017 Frankston City Volunteer of the Year Awards will be launched at the expo, with nomination forms for volunteers available. These awards aim to celebrate and recognise the valuable contribution that volunteers make to the Frankston community, and to reward volunteers who give so much of their own time and resources.

The Impact Volunteering Expo will be held on Wednesday, May 10, from 11am-3pm in the Lyrebird Hall, Lyrebird Community Centre, Carrum Downs. All are welcome and entry is free, with no RSVP needed. The expo coincides with National Volunteer Week, an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. From May 8-14, thousands of events will be held across the country to say thank you to the six million Australians who volunteer.
