Becoming a volunteer

Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WH&S), Council has the same ‘duty of care’ to its volunteers as to employees and therefore requires all volunteers to participate in an induction program conducted by a representative of Council or nominated committee member.

Working with Children

Local government legislation now requires consideration of Council volunteers to complete a Working with Children Check (WWCC) at no cost to the volunteer. Please discuss this requirement with Council.
