Our volunteers are crucial to our core business; in turn, they get the chance to grow their skills and develop their workplace expertise. Our volunteers help manage the office, coordinate activity enrolments, run activities, keep the Centre looking good, and even serve on our Committee. In a million ways both large and small, our volunteers support our staff, members and visitors on a daily basis. We couldn’t function without them!
If you would like to be considered for volunteering at our Centre please contact us for a Volunteer Expression of Interest form via firstname.lastname@example.org This will help us know what skills you have and what areas you are interested in. Once a vacancy is available you will be invited to an interview. All Centre volunteers must be willing to undergo a Police Check (organised by the Centre) and for some positions may also require a working with children check.
BECOME A MEMBER
The CDCC is a not-for-profit association, registered with Corporate Affairs Victoria. This registration provides the legal status for the Centre to conduct its activities and affairs and to fulfil its mission for the benefit of the local community.
For the Centre to operate effectively it needs a broad membership base, drawn from local residents and those in the surrounding region. In particular, those who have an interest in developing and strengthening the community.
A strong membership base will provide a connection with local residents and better inform the Centre's response to community needs and aspirations.
Joining up is easy
Residents and those with a direct connection with the local community can become a member of the Association by completing a membership form and returning to the Centre with payment of membership fee. Hard copies are available from the Centre. The annual membership fee is $10 for an individual member, or $15 for a family membership.
Please note: member benefits can only be used once your application is accepted by the board.
