Bega Valley Shire Council is excited to be launching a new online Community Directory as part of the upcoming National Volunteers Week celebrations.
The new Bega Valley Community Directory will be the ‘go to’ place for information on local community groups and non-profit organisations who deliver a multitude of services and activities to Bega Valley residents.
Bega Valley Shire Council Mayor, Cr Kristy McBain, said with so many active community groups and organisations operating across the Shire, the Directory will support the tremendous work they collectively do.
“This new online Community Directory will be an easy way for people to find out more about how to get involved and how to get support,” Cr McBain said.
“We encourage community groups and organisations to get on board and use this free resource so that people stay informed about their services, and to highlight the amazing contributions that volunteers are making in our community.”
The benefits of the new directory far outweigh any previous paper or database type directory, with community groups and organisations able to provide and update their own information for their page.
The directory will also enable them to let people know if they need volunteers. People interested in volunteering can then contact these groups via a direct email link.
The Bega Valley Community Directory will be officially launched from 4 – 5.30pm on Thursday 24 May, at the Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Centre (Zingel Place, Bega).
Local volunteers, community groups and non-profit organisations are invited to attend the event to hear more about the Directory and celebrate the work done by volunteers throughout the Shire.
