Council applauds volunteers for making a difference
National Volunteer Week (May 9-15) is a time to recognise and support the valued contribution our volunteers make to the Sunshine Coast region.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said council’s adopted Social Strategy set a target of increasing the contribution of community members volunteering within our region from one in five to one in four.
“To assist in achieving this target, council provided free professional development and networking opportunities for the region’s dedicated volunteers at the Sunshine Coast Volunteer Expo today (May 11),” Mayor Jamieson said.
“The Expo also provided volunteer organisations and individuals an opportunity to connect and network and those interested in volunteering to find out the benefits.”
