Volunteers expand Hobart’s reach

THE City of Hobart is looking for more helping hands as it relies on volunteers to deliver some of its most appreciated programs and services.

Five of Hobart’s key programs that incorporate valuable volunteer hours include:

Mathers House positive ageing program – volunteers help cook meals for the café, tutor, conduct administrative tasks and aid in delivering the jam-packed activities program.

Bushcare – community Bushcare groups are run by volunteers and help protect and maintain wildlife habitats, threatened plants, maintain and develop tracks and educate the community.

Still Gardening – helping people stay in their homes for longer, volunteers help older people to look after their gardens and raise public awareness of the health benefits of gardening.

Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre – sharing their insider knowledge, volunteers greet cruise ships and airplane arrivals with information they need to enjoy their trip in Hobart and Tasmania.

Youth Arts and Recreation Centre – volunteers help deliver workshops and events for people aged 12 to 25-years.

If you are interested in volunteering in any of these programs, just fill in and submit a registration form at www.hobartcity.com.au/Community/Volunteers.
