Volunteer Recognition Awards
In April each year the Hobart City Council invites all community organisations that operate in the Hobart municipal area to nominate for a Volunteer Recognition Award.
Two volunteers from each nominated community organisation are invited to a Volunteer Recognition Reception to receive an award on behalf of all volunteers in their organisation.
Volunteer Organisation - Award for Best Practice
All organisations co-ordinating voluntary work within the Hobart municipal area are also invited to nominate for the Volunteer Organisation Award for Best Practice. This award recognises best practice in the co-ordination, training, support and recognition of volunteers.
Previous winners of this award include Health Care Tasmania, Tasmania Fire Service, the Menzies Centre, Ronald McDonald House, the Royal Hobart Hospital Volunteer Service and the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
The 2012 award was won by Hobart City Mission.
