Volunteer recognition and events are high on the list of priorities at Volunteer Task Force (VTF). Events throughout the year include a breakfast celebration in May as part of National Volunteer Week; a celebration at Government House for International Volunteer Day in December; a Christmas Party at Yokine Bowling Club (pictured below); Christmas in July BBQs plus other smaller BBQs throughout the year.
Volunteers are often nominated for local and community awards. VTF was the winner of the Staff and Volunteer Training Award from Belmont Business Enterprise Centre in 2010 and the winner of Strengthening Volunteering Community Service Industry Awards in 2009.
Volunteers are invited to contribute with feedback and suggestions via our biannual newsletter and the suggestions boxes in the depots. Volunteer newsletters are produced twice a year to keep everyone informed of what’s happening at VTF. Volunteers are offered reimbursement for travel expenses based on the public transport system. If they carry clients in their own vehicle, they are reimbursed for fuel based on the size of their vehicle engine.
Individual gardening volunteers are offered lunch money to cover the cost of their packed lunch, unless under another arrangement, for example, a job agency.
