The NT SES Volunteers Association was registered on 19 July 2016 by a small group of volunteers with the aim of providing support to their fellow members. With the help of the National SES Volunteers Association and our sister organisations in each State and Territory we are raising funds to assist our fellow SES members through a variety of Programs.

An recent example is the Katherine Volunteer Unit was successful in a grants for gear bags and hydration packs.
