Opportunities

The significant contribution that volunteers make to the social and economic development of a community is highly valued by Council. Volunteering can be a rewarding experience.

The definition of a volunteer is a person who is motivated to undertake some form of community activity, not for financial gain, and in so doing, the community derives a benefit from the activity undertaken by the volunteer.

For volunteers to be provided with coverage under Council’s insurances they need to be engaged in activities on behalf of Council, and under the control of Council.

Why Should I Volunteer?

Volunteering plays a crucial role within the community in enhancing Council services and programs. It can be very rewarding. You can:

  • Learn and develop new skills
  • Build professional and social networks by meeting new people
  • Improve your interpersonal skills
  • Work in an area that matches your interests and passion
  • Give back to the community and know that you are playing a part in helping the community to flourish and grow
  • Achieve a satisfying work-life balance
