Volunteer work is unpaid work. Volunteers offer their time and services to the community freely and help us to extend the range of services offered to our residents.

If you’re a caring person and would like to give your time to assist others, we offer a variety of rewarding roles in the community. These roles can be viewed via the link at the bottom of this page.

Please note: The City of West Torrens is a COVID-19 vaccinated workplace. In the event you are successful in gaining a volunteering placement with the City of West Torrens, you will be required to provide evidence of your 'up to date' vaccination status.

Community activities

Community activities and areas you can get involved in volunteering include:

Specialised/new roles

From time to time we have roles become available which require specific sets of skills or are new in our organisation. When these roles are created, we'll advertise them here and through SEEK. If you have a skill set that you think could be useful, contact us for a chat.

Roles with other organisations

If we do not have a volunteering opportunity that interests you, maybe one of our local not-for-profit organisations will.
