Community services


Many local sporting clubs, community groups and organisations couldn’t continue their good work without the support of volunteers. Our community leads the way, with over 20% of the population participating in volunteer activities (the Victorian average is 19%).

Volunteering Mitchell Website

Our dedicated volunteering site was created to link volunteering opportunities to local organisations. Here you will be able to:

  • check available opportunities — become a volunteer
  • post volunteering opportunities in your organisation

Join the Volunteer Advisory Committee

Our Volunteer Advisory Committee works to ensure that volunteering is encouraged, supported and recognised.

It raises awareness of the importance of volunteering. It provides advice and feedback and promotes good management and development of volunteers by organisations that run volunteer programs.

The committee also supports members by sharing information and mentoring to build skills, knowledge, experience, resources and expertise.

For more information or to express your interest in joining the Volunteer Advisory Committee go to Engaging Mitchell.

Volunteering for Council

Our volunteers play an important role in the delivery of Council services, programs and events, and help to build strong, inclusive and resilient communities.
