Volunteers make a very important contribution to our community and these are a few of the ways you can get involved.
Hornsby Shire Bushcare
If you love the shire's bushland and enjoy spending time outdoors our volunteer Bushcare program is for you. Our Bushcare volunteers work with us to conserve and rehabilitate the shire's bushland. There are currently more than 850 registered Bushcare volunteers who work on more than 130 different sites throughout Hornsby Shire.
Friends of Lisgar Gardens
Do you love beautiful gardens? Would you like to help organise Lisgar Gardens two annual events - The Teddy Bears Picnic and Camellia Day. With the current COVID 19 situation Lisgar are currently not seeking Volunteers.
To get involved phone Lorraine 0419 018 253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The aim of Hornsby Connect is to provide support and hope to those that need it most within the community. With a growing population, the Hornsby Shire covers a large region and has fallen victim to the many social issues that are reflected within the wider society.
One major issue identified is the isolation and dislocation that some experience within our community. Whether it be the elderly or the young, due to cultural separation, or people experiencing financial hardships, Hornsby Connect is open for you.
Hornsby Connect are particularly seeking volunteers who are able to drive a van (only a regular car license is required) and also those able to participate in fairly physically demanding work.
Council Event Volunteers
Council regularly need volunteers to assist with promotion and preparation of Council organised events. If you would like to help at events such as Christmas Spectacular, Australia Day, music and food events, fill out a community volunteer application form and we will be in touch with future opportunities.
Ku-ring-gai/Hornsby Volunteer Referral Service
This is a valuable service that helps frail older people stay in their own homes, performing tasks such as driving, delivering meals and gardening. You can also help out in the Waitara Wellness Centre, leading the older people in activities or simply keeping them company by chatting to them.
To find other ways you can help your local community by volunteering, take a look at the Northern Sydney Volunteer Network booklet - 4.8MB.
