Volunteering with the Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre

Come and be part of a vibrant caring team where you can share your skills and learn some new ones. Mullumbimby and District Neighbourhood Centre recognises the valuable contribution to the service made by volunteers and actively encourages their participation because it:

  • enables the service to gain from the wide experience out in the community.

  • allows for wider community participation in the service
  • provides the opportunity for work experience and the development of new skills in volunteers

  • enables volunteers to contribute and feel part of their community.
  • helps volunteers share talents and create a better work-life balance.

  • gives the volunteer a sense of achievement, purpose, and opportunity to practise and develop social skills.
  • helps volunteers to feel better about themselves by improving self-esteem and confidence.
  • helps volunteers combat stress, loneliness, social isolation and depression
  • volunteering is a great way to build healthy relationships, strengthen your ties to the community and exposes you to people with similar interests.
