Every day in Goomalling people give their time and enthusiasm to work to help others.
As well as making a major social and economic contribution to Goomalling, these volunteers enjoy the many positive effects that volunteering can have including social support, healthy aging, community bonds and self-enhancement.
There are many opportunities to volunteer in Goomalling, whether it be one hour a term at the Toy Library, writing an article for the local newspaper The Endeavour, a regular spot on the ambulance roster or increasing Goomalling's economic, social and environmental resilience. Our community groups always extend a warm welcome and helping hand to new volunteers. So if you want to get involved:
- Find out what groups are in Goomalling. You can ask around or look through the list of groups under lifestyle and community - they range from sport and fitness groups, to the arts, churches, pre-schoolers, seniors, and nature and the environment.
- Choose which appeals to you.
- Contact the group directly, or contact the Shire's Community Development Officer Andrea Hardingham (on 9629 1101 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
