Bellarine Community Support Register Amongst Victorian Volunteer Finalists

Local organisation, Bellarine Community Support Register has been nominated in this year’s prestigious Victorian Volunteering Awards.

The State Government is recognising the hard work of Victorians who selflessly give their time to the community by announcing the 2021 Volunteering Awards finalists.

Over the last two years, Victoria’s community organisations and volunteers have remained resilient, flexible and innovative, ensuring vital services and local connections continued during some challenging circumstances.

The Bellarine Community Support register is amongst twenty-six organisations that have been announced as finalists across seven award categories.

One winner will be named the Premier’s volunteer champion of the year.

The winner will receive the Dame Elisabeth Murdoch award and a $10,000 donation to a not-for-profit organisation of their choice.

The Bellarine Community Support Register makes regular care calls and required follow ups  to those people living on the peninsula who are in need of support.

The 2021 Volunteering Awards will be presented at a function at Government House on March 25.
