Volunteering in Horsham
Volunteering is something that Australians generally embrace, whether it is in the area of education, sporting, social, health, emergency services or some other endeavour. We have numerous opportunities for residents, and even visitors, to contribute to the overall wellbeing of the community by supporting the efforts of the many local organisations that use or need volunteers. One of the factors that may cause people to not volunteer is they are unfamiliar with what is needed by an organisation, for example thinking that the CFA needs firefighters and not considering that it also needs secretaries and treasurers and radio operators and it has many support roles that are very useful without ever climbing into a red truck. Please consider investigating the many volunteering options available in the links below. Also, consider that for some support roles you don't need to live right near the location where the service is delivered, and some of our more remote localities are the ones most in need of support that could easily come from the larger communities.
