Community and Wellbeing

Volunteer opportunities

We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities listed online for you to consider. You can contact these organisations directly, or if you don’t see anything that matches your interests you can submit a volunteer expression of interest application so we can help match you to the right opportunity.

Organisations are welcome to submit volunteer vacancies, which we will add to available opportunities for interested volunteers.

Council opportunities

All new Council volunteers are provided with Corporate Induction training and role/site-specific training.

Some roles may require a criminal history screening (at no cost to you) and the hours required vary depending on the volunteer role. Council is a Centrelink approved organisation.
