Do you like to have a chat? Do you like helping others? A friendly phone call or visit can go a long way towards making someone feel part of our community.

Council is working with community partners on a project to help tackle loneliness. We are calling on those who have some free time to volunteer as a ‘friend’ to provide company and conversation for Shire community members who are feeling left out.

If you’re caring, friendly and can volunteer to visit or make calls on a regular basis, then register online now as a ‘Befriending Volunteer’.

If you are interested in volunteering, the project is providing an Befriending Volunteer Information and Training Session. Registrations are essential.
