Now, more than ever, is a good time to consider volunteering with a local group or organisation. Taking up a volunteer role can be a great way to connect with our community and make a real difference.
There are a number of local volunteering opportunities with community organisations including:
Holdsworth - in Woollahra is keeping a list of volunteers to call on. You will need a police check.
Our Big Kitchen - assist in preparing or distributing meals for people in need across Sydney. Apply online.
COA Sydney - assist with delivering kosher Meals on Wheels or fruit and vegetables to vulnerable or isolated people. Volunteers need to be 65 years or below. Apply online.
Catholic Healthcare - assist with making telephone calls to the elderly. More information.
They are looking for support with meal preparation and providing contact with elderly or isolated members of the community. You can even put your name down for future opportunities.
Council is still receiving applications for new volunteers for future activities in our bushcare, harbourcare program and with our libraries. All you need to do is complete the Volunteer Application Form to register your interest. Once we receive your form, we will contact you.
For further information on volunteering with Woollahra Council, please read our Volunteer Policy or email [email protected]
If your organisation serves the Woollahra community and is looking for volunteers during COVID-19, please email information to [email protected]
National Volunteering Week is 18-24 May and we will be celebrating the wonderful contribution volunteers make to helping the lives of others and to looking after our local area.
