Queensland SES Week

Queensland SES Week

Queenslanders helping Queenslanders







Each year, the spotlight shines on the spirit of volunteering during SES Week.

Queenslanders are given the opportunity to learn more about the SES and recognise the efforts of SES Members in their local community during this momentous week.

It is a week of community education, engagement and celebration.

It is an excellent opportunity to raise public awareness of the dedication and commitment of SES members and the invaluable services they perform within their communities.

The celebrations include award ceremonies held state-wide throughout SES Week and culminating in the Queensland State Awards Ceremony in Brisbane on Sunday 15 October 2017.

The award ceremonies provide a rare opportunity to say thank you to particular SES members that have clocked up several years of service, or to those that have undertaken their role in an exceptional way.

SES Groups will hold events throughout SES Week to celebrate all that is great about SES volunteers.
