Lithgow City Council is committed to encouraging equitable access to services and facilities that meet the needs of the community and to recognise that volunteers contribute to the political, social, economic, environmental and cultural well being of the community by:
Expanding the ability of the community to respond to the needs of the public by providing a broad range of community services and activities.
Engaging the community in protecting local resources improving the physical environment and support for environmental issues.
Strengthening community cohesion, social wellbeing and trust.
Lithgow City Council recognises that volunteers from the community make a valuable contribution to a range of council activities. They maybe involved in caring for others less fortunate, improving community-owned assets, caring for the environment or public contact roles. Through their commitment and energy, volunteers enhance the fabric of the local community.
The Volunteer Management Procedure is produced to address the need to formalise roles and responsibilities for all involved in the volunteering process and support volunteering opportunities in our community. This procedure provides the framework for volunteers and council workers to work cooperatively and safely at all times.
Please note: Lithgow City Council is committed to the health and safety of its workers, volunteers and the community. Council require all potential volunteers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
