Volunteering opportunities

Woollahra Council is lucky to have more than 200 volunteers who help our community in various ways such as in our libraries, at our Bushcare regeneration sites and through our HarbourCare program.

Now, more than ever, is a good time to consider volunteering with a local group or organisation. It can be a great way to connect with our community and make a real difference.

There are a number of local volunteering opportunities outside of Council where you can help support others during this time.

Council welcomes applications for new volunteers for future activities. Complete the Volunteer Application Form(PDF, 238KB) to register your interest. Once we receive your form, we will contact you.

For further information on volunteering, please read our Volunteer Policy(PDF, 694KB) or email jobs@woollahra.nsw.gov.au

If your organisation serves the Woollahra community and is looking for volunteers, please email information to community@woollahra.nsw.gov.au
