Finding volunteering opportunities now easier

Chester Hill Neighbourhood Centre, in partnership with the City of Canterbury Bankstown, has launched the City’s first online hub for local volunteers.

Officially launched last week, the Canterbury-Bankstown Volunteer Cloud allows local volunteers and community organisations to find and connect with one another.

Chester Hill Neighbourhood Centre Project Worker, Blair Avila, said the idea for the website is to provide a similar service like that of Go Volunteer or Seek.

"The Canterbury-Bankstown Volunteer Cloud aims to make volunteering a lifestyle, and trend, by providing an online space where volunteers and organisations can digitally meet," Mrs Avila said.

"This means volunteers from Canterbury-Bankstown are prioritised and are aware of volunteer organisations close to their homes."

Ms Avila thanked Council for its support in bringing the project to life.

"It is a wonderful example of how the Council wants to help strengthen volunteering in their community," Mrs Avila said.

Already, Bankstown Meals on Wheels and Council’s Bushcare Program feature on the interactive site.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it was a tremendous opportunity for those needing help and for those wanting to invest their time charitably.

"It’s a win-win for all. Volunteers are the backbone of our community and are a perfect example of what selfless individuals look like," Mayor Khal Asfour said.

"It’s these special people and organisations who really contribute to the wonderful sense of community we enjoy in our City and help improve the lives of others.

"We have an abundance of organisations that are always looking for extra help, so this website is a match made in heaven."

Chester Hill Neighbourhood Centre was awarded $48,480 for the project through the Stronger Community Fund. The group was one of the 27 that received a share in $985,326 to fund community projects.
