Announced on 13 May, the awards recognise the amazing work and dedication of volunteers who support the health and wellbeing of the Victorian community.

Victorian Minister for Health, the Hon Jill Hennessy MP presented PANDA CEO Terri Smith and volunteer Deb Purcell with the award at a special ceremony.

“For many, our volunteers have been a lifeline, a connection and a sense of hope. The outcome of their support has been healthier parents and healthier parenting.”

Minister for Health, Jill Hennessy said, “Health volunteers make a remarkable difference in supporting the most frail, sick and vulnerable people in our community, and we celebrate their inspirational contributions today.”

“I congratulate and thank all health volunteers for their kindness, generosity and willingness to step forward to help others in need.”
