Volunteer Headquarters


Volunteers are at the core of a successful club. Appreciation is a key consideration for clubs who want to recruit and retain good volunteers and goes a long way to encouraging volunteers to actively engage with their club.

Online Nomination Form – Nominations can be submitted by completing the form at the bottom of this link.

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) is pleased to continue the Newcastle Permanent Volunteer Recognition Program in 2017.

Volunteers are at the heart of our sport’s success and week to week implementation. This award, supported by our Partner in Community Football, Newcastle Permanent Building Society,  will recognise the significant contribution of over 8000 volunteers across Northern NSW.

Appreciation is a key consideration for clubs who want to recruit and retain good volunteers and goes a long way to encouraging volunteers to actively engage with their club.

This important program will commence in March and continue through until August this year.

Every month, NNSWF in conjunction with its seven Member Zones will select one (1) registered volunteer from each Zone to be awarded “Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Month”. Each winner will be awarded with a certificate recognising their achievement, Volunteer Jacket and Patrick Super Cup Bag. Their contribution to football will also be recognised on the NNSWF website network and social media platforms.

From the pool of monthly winners, a “Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year” for each Zone will be recognised.

This final pool of Zone winners will be assessed and one will be awarded as the “Newcastle Permanent Volunteer of the Year” announced at NNSWF annual awards night. This winner will receive an award plus a $250 First Touch Gift Voucher.

All member clubs will be able to nominate their fantastic volunteers via the link below and provide their details and a brief description of their contribution to football.

We look forward to receiving your nominations for our hard working volunteers.

It is very important for all individuals to remember –

Being a volunteer, you may wish to do a Working with Children Check if over the age of 18. If working with children under 18 regularly you will need to complete one unless you fit the criteria for Exemptions from the Working With Children Check. (Exempt Declaration Form). To register for a WWCC is free and doesn’t take long to apply online.

To register, click here – Working with Children Check (select ‘Apply For Your Check’ and then fill in all the details as required. Ensure you have ‘Volunteer’ selected).

Once you have had your application verified at Services NSW, you need to provide your club with the Application Number or Check Number so that they can verify your status.
