More and more people are getting involved in their communities as volunteers, offering their time and energy to improve the quality of life for themselves and others.

People volunteer for a variety of reasons and in many different ways depending on their interests, skills, age and availability.  Committing to volunteer for one hour a week can have a profound benefit on your wellbeing.


Burwood Council has many opportunities for people wishing to be involved in some form of community activity.  Volunteers provide a wide range of valuable services to the local community through social, environmental and cultural wellbeing.

Some of the areas in which Council enlists the assistance of volunteers include:

  • Arts
  • Children & Youth
  • Disability Services
  • Education
  • Environment / Conservation
  • Health
  • Multicultural
  • Recreation
  • Seniors
  • Services to the Community
  • Sport

These are just some, there are many more out there.
