Rockingham Volunteer Centre hub for volunteering

THE Rockingham Volunteer Centre (RVC) has reopened for 2019, with residents and organisations able to tap into this valuable community resource.

Located at the Rockingham Central Library, the RVC is the hub for volunteering.

The centre has a dual role, helping residents looking to volunteer find suitable role and assisting community groups, organisations and sporting clubs looking for volunteers.

The RVC also helps promote the wide range of benefits of volunteering.

City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said volunteering played a vital role in fostering strong connections in the community.

“Volunteering is an important tool that builds social connectedness and strengthens the many wonderful community organisations that are in need of assistance,” he said.

“Not only does volunteering give you the chance to share your skills and help others, it also provides an opportunity to meet new, like-minded people, and the chance to boost your own sense of social wellbeing.

“We are fortunate to have a large number of hardworking volunteers in our City and I encourage anyone who is thinking about helping their community to become a member of the Rockingham Volunteer Centre.”

There are a number of volunteering roles available in the City including administration, events, conservation and gardening, sporting clubs and emergency services.
