More than 6 million Australian volunteers give happiness to others each year and research says that that those volunteers are happier as a result. Many services and events in Burnie are only possible due to the fantastic support from volunteers.
As part of the community driven strategic plan, Making Burnie 2030, a goal has been set to see an increase of people volunteering in our community, indicating an improved level of inclusiveness and belonging.
Below are some volunteering opportunities. More information can also be found on the Volunteering Tasmania website.
In Tasmania, our emergency services run with the help of people just like you who work as volunteers.
