Community & welfare

Consider some of the roles community welfare groups offer the volunteers they rely on to make a difference.

Meals on Wheels delivery

You could help welcome newcomers to Australia, offer support to people with English as an other language, promote community spirit, volunteer in disability care, help raise funds, or support one-off special events, such as your local Australia Day celebrations.

Multicultural services

Accessible via a New Arrivals to NSW icon on the Multicultural NSW homepage (www.multicultural.nsw.gov.au/home), the Settlement Portal offers links to useful organisations and resources, to help with a range of issues.

Community groups
Local councils have information about community groups and activities. Locate your council on the NSW Government's local council search.

Charities
Many charities in NSW also rely on the active participation of volunteers in fundraising, management, committee work and advocacy.

For other ideas, go to Google, and search using key words such as 'volunteer' and 'charity'.
