Volunteer Support Service

We aim to help connect individuals in the community with volunteering opportunities; we do this through operating as an active link between individuals and our membership base of over 200 not for profit organisations. We offer a variety of volunteering opportunities that cover a wide range of services in the not for profit sector, including sports, the arts, tourism, education, health, emergency services, animal welfare, the environment, national institutions, and community welfare. We also offer free training sessions for volunteers throughout the year.
