Are you looking for volunteers?

The Peel Volunteer Resource Centre provides support, training and assistance to not-for-profit orgniasations, sporting clubs and groups looking for and actively using volunteers. If you lead, coordinate or manage volunteers or if your organisation involves volunteers in any way, we encourage you to find out how we can assist your volunteer management program.

The services that the PVRC provide to agencies requiring/using volunteers include advertising volunteer vacancies within the centre, training, organisation, and frequently asked questions. We also interact with other volunteering websites in order to expose a wider range of potential volunteers to opportunities outside of their comfort zone.

The 2022 Alcoa Peel Volunteer of the Year Awards

Peel Volunteer Resource Centre has now opened nominations for the Alcoa Peel Volunteer of the Year Awards.  Now in their 15th year, these awards promote the value and important contributions made to the social, cultural, economic and environmental wellbeing to the Peel community.  They pay tribute to all those who, by their accomplishments, encourage and promote the spirit of volunteerism.

To be eligible for these awards, the volunteering effort must be of benefit to the Peel region.

The contribution volunteers make to other people’s lives is immeasurable.  They enhance lives in so many ways by their generous work in so many areas – sporting clubs, community groups and emergency services.  And all without payment!  Some may give a few hours work while others work almost full time, but they all have one thing in common – they CARE.

And whatever their contribution, we acknowledge it and say Thank You.

By taking part in these awards, we all have the opportunity to say

#VOLUNTEERNOW #BETTERTOGETHER

 Peel Volunteer / Supported by the City of Mandurah

Peel Youth Volunteer / Supported by the Shire of Murray
