Community Volunteer Programme

Volunteer Recruitment_Aqua

Volunteering helps to build the resilience of our community. Community volunteers are knowledgeable, they are informed, can self-organise and they understand how to access resources and capabilities within and outside their communities. Ultimately, they show community pride and offer a significant contribution to Livingstone Shire’s residents and visitors.


Livingstone Shire Council has a number of community volunteering programmes which offer volunteers a sense of empowerment, positivity and belonging.  Click on the below links to learn more about the individual programmes.
