Volunteering in your Community

The City of Port Lincoln recognises the importance and value of volunteering within the Port Lincoln community and are committed in pursuing best practice management of volunteering programs and services across the organisation.

Our volunteer programs span across five different program areas, attracting over 100 volunteers to assist Council with its community programs and services. The City of Port Lincoln values the significant contribution made by community members who volunteer their time to support these services.
