Volunteering with Bayside City Council
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.
Please note that in order to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many of Council's volunteer programs have been suspended until further notice. We will keep you up to date with any new information as it arrives.
Some programs are currently accepting new volunteer applications to begin when programs resume. Please click below to register your interest in these.

The manual has been recently enhanced to cover:
