Volunteering during Coronavirus

The Coronavirus pandemic has created many challenges across Australia. We are working intensely with local organisations and resident groups to help lead the community response to these challenges.

We need to support each other as a community so we can get through this together. Volunteers will play an important role for relief and recovery - we need to know you are there and willing when required.

If you are keen to help, please register your interest to volunteer. We are aiming to support people wanting to volunteer (maintaining safe social distancing practices), so that support can be rapidly deployed across the Peninsula to ensure essential services continue and the most vulnerable in our community are taken care of.

We are currently working on a Caring for our Community initiative to address the immediate issue of ensuring vulnerable residents are looked after by making care packages available and delivered through our material aid organisations. Shire staff will be redeployed from non-essential services and community volunteers are being asked to register, should they wish to volunteer.

We will also coordinate requests from other essential services in need of volunteers to ensure all local residents get the services and care they need over the coming weeks.
