Volunteer

Volunteers significantly enhance the quality of life, community spirit and leisure time opportunities in the Coffs Harbour Region and volunteering promotes enduring social, cultural, environmental and economic value to Council and the community.

Council recognises that fostering a sense of community, belonging and diversity is a key theme in the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan and we support this through providing a diverse range of opportunities for the community to volunteer. Volunteering provides the opportunity to participate more in community life and to share and develop your skills, interests and expertise.

Council is committed to providing a collaborative, supportive and safe working environment for volunteers. In addition Council aspires to make the volunteer experience an enjoyable and rewarding one that encourages personal and professional growth.

Becoming a volunteer is a great way to:

• Get actively involved in your community
• Help someone else
• Build confidence
• Meet new people
• Feel needed by the community
• Learn new skills
• Gain valuable job experience
• Make a difference

Coffs Harbour City Council currently has over 350 volunteers providing services to the community.

The following is a broad list of the areas Council engage volunteers:
