New volunteering philosophy

The Regional Council of Goyder has introduced a new philosophy around volunteering to community members and groups.

Council acknowledges the positive impact volunteer groups from across the region have on developing capacity and sustaining local communities.

To reflect this, council developed a new policy that will provide roles for volunteers within council in areas such as tourism, events and National Heritage.

Through this policy, and a new membership with Volunteering SA, council aims to build a strong volunteer base to assist with projects across the regional, while also ensuring volunteers are acknowledged and provided with recognition and support within their roles.
