The City of Perth’s 140 volunteers donate around 24,000 hours per year through programs at the City of Perth, iCity Visitor Information Centre and Citiplace Community Centre.

Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said National Volunteer Week 2024 was a great time to honour City volunteers for their dedication and ongoing contribution to the City of Perth community.

“Our City volunteers make an invaluable contribution to our community and we truly appreciate their contribution,” Mr Zempilas said.

“Our volunteering program attracts people from all walks of life – our youngest is aged 20, while our oldest is 87. The fact that all 140 volunteers choose to spend their time helping the City of Perth community is remarkable and I sincerely thank them all.”

The Citiplace Community Centre on Wellington Street recently celebrated its 35th milestone while the iCity Visitor Service is in its 23rd year.

On Friday 24 May, the City is hosting an afternoon tea at Council House to say thank you to City volunteers.

The Lord Mayor and CEO Michelle Reynolds will be joined at the event by guest speaker Diane de Vos from the Royal Academy of Dance and WA Performing Arts.

National Volunteer Week 2024 is an annual celebration to ensure volunteering is inclusive of all members of the Australian community.

Held between 20 and 26 May, this year’s theme for National Volunteer Week is ‘Something for Everyone’, recognising the powerful impact volunteers have on their community.
