Volunteering

Council recognises and values the substantial and ongoing contribution of volunteers in the life of our community. The people of the Bega Valley have a proud history of volunteering with more than 26% of people aged over 15 engaged in some form of voluntary work. This is 6% above the NSW average (ABS Census 2006 and 2011) and speaks strongly about our willingness to pitch in and help make the Shire a great place to live. Volunteering helps us maintain our strong community life, make us more cohesive and improve our social well-being.

Here at Council there are over 350 volunteers engaged across a broad range of program areas. These volunteers generously provide their time, share their experience and their knowledge, and without them Council simply could not maintain the same level of services and facilities.

Council has a range of volunteering opportunities that suit most people. As a volunteer with Council you will be a part of a team that plans and delivers services and programs across the Shire. You have an opportunity to meet people, learn new skills and contribute to your local community.

Become a volunteer, it is a great way to make a difference and support your local community.

Bega Valley Regional Gallery

If you have an interest in the arts and would like to contribute to the ongoing program at the gallery we would love to hear from you.

The Bega Valley Regional Gallery (BVRG) has a dedicated team of volunteers who “gallery sit” on a rostered basis. They deal directly with members of the public – primarily answering visitor enquiries – and are one of the gallery’s most valuable resources.

Interested and reliable people who have a responsible sense of community and a love of the arts are asked to contact council's volunteering team, via phone on 02 6499 2222 or email council@begavalley.nsw.gov.au

Timebanking

Timebanking is a community program that allows the voluntary exchange of services between members.

It’s as simple as give an hour, receive an hour: by giving one hour to helping another member, you earn one hour of time credits which can be used to receive services that are of personal value such as dog walking, ironing, community gardening, massage, language tuition, painting, administrative assistance…you’re only restricted by your imagination.

Everyone can be part of Timebanking as everyone has something to give.
