Volunteer helping residents

Volunteering in Brimbank – National Volunteer Week

In Brimbank, where diversity thrives and community connections are strong, volunteering is part of life for nearly 1000 residents.

Whether it’s lending a hand at a local food bank, teaching someone a new skill, or simply being a good neighbour, volunteering is a way to build bridges and create connections across cultures and generations.

It’s a chance to learn from one another, share experiences, and make our community a more inclusive and welcoming place for everyone.

National Volunteer Week (20-26 May 2024)

National Volunteer Week is a perfect opportunity to celebrate and recognise the work and ongoing commitment of Brimbank volunteers.

 With this year’s National Volunteer Week theme “Something for Everyone”, volunteering in Brimbank means just that!

As well as a variety of volunteering options, it’s about celebrating our differences and finding strength in our diversity.

In Brimbank, volunteering is recognised as a valuable part of life that strengthens communities.

The benefits include supporting civic and economic participation, helping to lessen feelings of isolation and loneliness, and supporting social integration and connectedness.

A big thank you

Brimbank Mayor Cr Ranka Rasic said: “National Volunteer Week is an opportunity to stop and thank all the people who make time in their busy lives to give back to the community through our volunteering program.

“We recognise volunteers as the lifeblood of community service and Brimbank residents benefit enormously from their commitment and dedication.

“Our volunteers are really special people, and we are so grateful for their ongoing commitment to our community.”
