Congratulations to Michael Taylor

Michael  was presented with a Premier’s Award last month at Parliament House in recognition of over 30 years of volunteering.  Michael was one of the winners out of many worthy nominations from our organisation.  He volunteered for Vinnies and the NSW State Emergency Service for many years.  After to Lane Cove four years ago he started volunteering for Sydney Community Services.  Michael drives the community bus, delivers Meal on Wheels  and works in the Linen Service.  Sydney Community Services is very lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers, like Michael, who give their time to helping the community.

What is the Premier’s Award?

The Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program recognises the contribution volunteers make towards strengthening our communities.  Both adults and students are acknowledged under the program, with each nominee receiving a certificate recognising their individual efforts.  The Premier launched the program in 2015, and since then more than 13,000 volunteers have been recognised across NSW under the program.

Nominations under the Premier’s Volunteer Recognition Program are open throughout the year, closing on 30 September.  Recognition certificates are presented at the end of the year, in most cases by the local Member of Parliament.
