There are hundreds of community groups in Murrindindi Shire all contributing to the richness of community life in a variety of ways. All the organisations featured below rely on volunteer support to remain viable and are currently seeking new volunteers.

Volunteering has many benefits, for you and your community. It might be supporting a cause that’s important to you or developing new skills or meeting new people.

There are many reasons people volunteer, such as:

  • connecting with other people
  • being active in the community
  • supporting important community causes
  • learning about different cultures
  • feeling good about giving back
  • finding pathways to job, study or training opportunities
  • developing new skills or getting experience in different roles to improve your CV.

Volunteering is a wonderful way to support the community, develop a sense of purpose and meaning in life and to get out and have fun.

Volunteering is for everyone. Regardless of background, skills, experience or the amount of time you have to give, there are roles for people with different levels of commitment.

The first step of getting ready to volunteer is to think about:

  • the type of volunteering work you would like to do
  • your interests and passions, and the types of organisations you'd like to work with
  • what you hope to get from the volunteer experience
  • how much time you have to give
  • how regularly you want to volunteer, for example one-off, weekly or monthly.
