Volunteer Groups

Blayney Shire has a number of wonderful volunteer groups that run a large number of events, activities, sports, programs, attractions, committees and campaigns throughout the region.

Blayney Shire Council is in the process of creating a directory of all the different groups and their details as well as listings for available volunteer positons.

•    If you run a volunteer group please submit the details of the group via our community directory listing form.
•    If you run a volunteer group and are looking for more volunteers please upload a volunteer position description.

Benefits of Volunteering
Volunteers in the Visitor Centre experience a very rewarding role as volunteers provide local knowledge on businesses, attractions and events contributing not only to the visitor’s positive tourism experience in Blayney but also assisting with the awareness and growth of our tourism businesses and attractions in the region.
