Research tells us that just a few hours of volunteer work makes a difference in people’s happiness.

It’s proven that volunteers are happier, healthier and even sleep better than those who don’t volunteer.

  • Opportunity to learn or develop new skills 
  • Increased community connection
  • Increased motivation and sense of achievement
  • Broadening career options and exploring new fields
  • Creating new interests and hobbies
  • Meeting a diverse range of people 

The community benefits include:

  • Fostering of community spirit and pride
  • Makes active, confident and resilient communities
  • Connects people in new ways
  • Makes communities healthy, inclusive and safe
  • Develops local leaders

Golden Plains Shire Council honours the generous service of volunteers in Golden Plains Shire and many more around Australia and the world, for enriching our quality of life and social cohesion.

We thank each and every volunteer for their commitment and service; those in emergency services, sports, arts, health and in every community activity in and around the Shire.
