Volunteering at Council


Like many other organisations, Wingecarribee Shire Council relies on volunteers to assist with the provision of services and facilities for the community. 

Volunteering is an enjoyable and very rewarding way to get involved in activities which make a real difference to the Southern Highlands. Through their commitment and energy, volunteers enrich the fabric of our Highlands community.

Council currently offers volunteering opportunities in the following areas:

Section 355 Management Committees

355 Committees assist Council in the management of a number of our community facilities (eg. Halls; Sporting grounds).

Bushcare volunteers assist Council in the management and restoration of native bushland on Council owned and managed bushland reserves.

Animal Shelter

Volunteers at the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter assist with dog walking and socialising kittens and cats. Both activities assist animals in becoming more adoptable.

Committees of Council
