International Volunteer Day

Tuesday 5 December 2023

Today, Wednesday 5 December, is International Volunteer Day, and acknowledges the commitment shown by volunteers across the world and specifically for us, our wonderful volunteers here at Grampians Health.

The 2023 theme is ‘If Everyone Did’, as per the Volunteering Australia website. This statement refers to the fact that if everyone volunteered, the world would be a better place. There would be limitless possibilities for sustainable development, food and education for everyone, clean environment and good health, inclusive and peaceful societies, and more.

Volunteers are a vital part of our health service, providing care and support to patients, staff and the local community, and are more valued than ever with the current strains on healthcare.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteer teams, you truly are appreciated!
