Volunteering Programs

Volunteering with Community Services #1

CS#1 recognises that volunteers are the life blood of a community and appreciate the vital role they play in delivering high quality community services. We recognise and value the massive contribution our volunteers make to the success of CS#1’s programs and community events.

CS#1 is always looking for enthusiastic, skilled, community-minded volunteers to join our team and help us deliver best information and services across the Canberra community. Our CS#1 Volunteer Rights and Responsibilities document offers more information on what you can expect when volunteering with CS#1, and also what will be expected of you.
