Did you know that the Sutherland Shire has over 25,000 residents who reported being a volunteer in 2021?

We value our volunteers, and the contribution they make to our community. Volunteering is a wonderful way to make a difference in your lives and the lives of others. It’s a great way to develop skills, create new social networks, meet like-minded people and be actively engaged in the community.

We offer several opportunities for volunteering. View opportunities to volunteer with Council below:
