Organisations encouraged to update their volunteer listings

16th September 2020
Organisations in our community are in need of volunteers to run efficiently, and there are volunteers out there looking for opportunities to help out. Council’s Community Volunteer Project is aimed at making sure the two are joined together.

Organisations urged to update their volunteer listings

Wattle Range Council maintains a volunteer database on its website, community groups can list any vacant volunteer positions that they need to be filled. It’s a bit like an employment site, for volunteers.

Mayor, Des Noll is encouraging local organisations to consider updating their listings to help them connect with people that may be looking to contribute their time as a volunteer.

“Volunteers Week was held in May this year, with the theme ‘Changing communities, changing lives’ which has certainly been the case here in Wattle Range, and in fact across the nation in 2020,” Mayor Noll said.

“With the weather improving and pandemic restrictions easing, Council has noted an increase in people looking for opportunities to volunteer their time,” he explained.

“Now is the perfect time for organisations to review their operations and update their listing on Council’s website. Volunteering is rewarding: you meet new people, you learn new skills and you use your talents to help others.”

Potential volunteers are invited to view Council’s online listing, and organisations seeking assistance should submit details of the available roles by Wednesday, September 30.

Both are available at www.wattlerange.sa.gov.au/volunteers or by contacting Council’s Community Development Officer, Sarah Marzec on 8733 0900 or council@wattlerange.sa.gov.au.
