Council’s volunteering program comprises over 1500 volunteers. These people contribute their valuable time and skills across many different areas of the organisation. With their help, council can deliver much needed services and programs to the Sunshine Coast community.
For individuals, volunteering provides an opportunity to be involved in activities reflecting their interests and using their skills, while building a stronger and connected community. Council provides a supportive and safe working environment for volunteers.
