Kyabram’s new Volunteer Connect program is looking for volunteers and organisations to sign up and be matched.
The register’s main purpose is to connect volunteers and organisations according to their interests, skills, expertise and availability.
The project was launched at the recent Welcome to Kyabram evening.
As a centralised and co-ordinated system, it aims to meet the needs of potential individual volunteers and any organisations seeking volunteers to help out in a range of roles.
The project’s organisers are keen to achieve successful matching which will hopefully help organisations retain their volunteer workforce.
At the same time, it will increase the wellbeing and sense of belonging of individuals through positive and successful participation as a volunteer in the community.
Volunteer Connect is based at Kyabram Community and Learning Centre and is funded by a community grant from Campaspe Shire Council.
If you are newcomer to town or a local resident who has changed circumstances and has extra time, or simply someone who wants to help out, Volunteer Connect would like to hear from you.
Likewise, if you represent an organisation that benefits from the help of volunteers and would like to hear from other people who may be able to assist, show your interest by registering.
Kyabram has a good history of volunteering and many organisations and sports clubs benefit from the efforts of their volunteers, and in return those who help out get the satisfaction of knowing their efforts are welcomed and appreciated.
Registration forms for Volunteer Connect are available from KCLC reception at 21 to 25 Lake Rd, Kyabram or for more information, phone 5852
