Volunteering opportunities

We understand and value the important role volunteers play in building a happy and healthy community. Find out about the types of volunteering you can do with us and the Bayside community.

Volunteering for Bayside City Council

Volunteering is a fun and an easy way to explore your interests and passions. As a volunteer, you can make a significant contribution to various areas of community life.

Bayside City Council manages a range of programs which rely on volunteers to deliver services to the Bayside community.  We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities and endeavour to match each individual with meaningful roles within the community.
