Volunteers put the community into Community Centres by contributing their good will and positive energy for the benefit of the neighbourhood. Volunteering is a great way to build confidence, meet locals and feel a stronger sense of belonging and purpose. Some roles are formal and regular, and others may be once-off or intermittent, suiting people with different lifestyles and experience.
The possibilities for contributing to your neighbourhood are only bound by your imagination.
If you ever care for a friend’s child, collect the mail for a neighbour, feed someone’s cat while they’re on holidays, help translate a letter etc. you already are a volunteer.
If you are a member of a community group which is interested in adding extra value, but not sure how to get started, please contact your local Neighbourhood Hub Team Leader based at Council Community Centres.
