Greater Taree City Council is committed to supporting volunteerism as a way of engaging with and involving the community in delivering and providing services to support its core business.
Council benefits from the efforts of volunteers through the support they provide in the delivery of services to assist in its service delivery. Currently Council has over 350 volunteers working in a variety of fields such as parks and gardens, youth services, art galleries, libraries and the Manning Entertainment Centre, just to name a few.
Without the support of these dedicated individuals, Council’s ability to provide the current level of services would not be as extensive. The recent community engagement process identified a strong desire by the community to increase the level of volunteer support given to Council.
