Trustpower Community Awards

About the Community Awards

Volunteers are the backbone behind every New Zealand community, dedicating more than 270 million unpaid hours every year for non-profit organisations up and down the country.  Trustpower understands that, which is why we celebrate and reward volunteers through our Trustpower Community Awards programme.
