Mornington Peninsula Shire has partnered with Western Port Community Information and Support Centre to provide a Volunteering Information Hub in Hastings, following a successful trial last year.
You can now drop in to the Volunteering Information Hub at the Centre to chat with a volunteer about how to volunteer, the benefits of giving back to the community and how to find a volunteering opportunity that is right for you!
The Volunteer Information Hub will operate five days (Monday to Friday) from Tuesday 1 October.
The Hub will complement existing community support and information services by providing a face-to-face service that links people to sectors and organisations for volunteer opportunities.
Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill said “volunteering is a great way to connect with and give back to your local community”.
Cerberus Ward Councillor Kate Roper said anyone is welcome to drop in and find out about volunteering, services, clubs and groups that are in their local area.
“At the hub, you can speak to someone about what volunteering roles might suit you and find a volunteering opportunity close to home”, concluded Cr Roper.
Volunteers benefit from the experience of giving something back through a sense of accomplishment, personal growth, recognition, learning, skills and work experience and most of all making a difference.
If you are thinking about volunteering and want some help to find a role to suit you, drop in to the Hastings Volunteering Information Hub.
