Council celebrates the volunteers who support our great city.

Council encourages volunteering through the Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service and supports many volunteer roles within our own operations.

Whatever your skills and interests, Council may have a volunteer position to suit you.

Mayor, Cr Jim Memeti said volunteers make a valuable contribution to our community, and after a long period of cancelled events and affected services, volunteering is more important than ever.

“Volunteers are crucial to the support and wellbeing of people of all ages and from all walks of life,” the Mayor said.

“For so many people the world is a new place, and a welcoming smile from one of our volunteers can provide assurance and a feeling of safety.”

Council is currently seeking volunteers to support the meals on wheels service, however opportunities for other activities and services are also open, including:

  • home library service
  • support for children
  • events ambassadors
  • English tutors
  • support elderly residents
  • Gardens for Wildlife guide.

Explore current opportunities and fill out a volunteer application form via Council’s website.
