Volunteering Network

Project Overview

Volunteering helps build stronger communities by providing people with an opportunity to become involved.

Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.

Volunteering is a reciprocal relationship. The individual and the community benefit from the efforts of volunteers. Their invaluable contribution of work skills, life experience and continued support make a significant difference in many sectors of the community. Without the commitment of volunteers, many local organisations, events and services would cease to function.

In 2021, 18.4% of Shire residents reported doing some form of voluntary work. The total number of volunteers in the Shire is 6018 (Australian Bureau of Statistics).

  • We asked this question back in January, and it has become perhaps event more important to get your feedback now! How can we support community groups/sporting clubs overcome the challenges presented by COVID-19?
