The Berri Barmera Council recognises the important role that Volunteers undertake throughout the community. Many people have a desire to give voluntarily of their time and within Local Government there are opportunities for this to occur. While there are a number of areas within our Council where the participation of Volunteers could arise, the key roles are within Tourism, Libraries and Community Transport.
Due to the recent construction of the Visitor Information Centre at Berri, a number of Volunteers were required to provide back-up support to the staff.
With two Libraries located within our Council district, the opportunity for any person with an interest in this field to offer Volunteer hours is often available.
Being transport disadvantaged within the Riverland is a situation that, for many residents, is a reality. The Riverland Community Transport Scheme provides an opportunity for any person who enjoys driving and meeting people to volunteer their time to drive passengers throughout our region.
