Volunteering is an integral part of our community, its culture and its history.
Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.
The Rural City of Murray Bridge (RCMB) recognises the improtance of volunteers within its community and values the commitment and contribution volunteers make to the wellbeing of the community.
Volunteering has mutual benefits for volunteers and Council. Volunteers are an important resource for our community as they support a range of services and programs. Without volunteers, many of the services and programs provided by the Council would either not be possible or the cost of providing these programs and services would be significantly more. For volunteers, involvement in the delivery of the Council's services and programs in a voluntary capacity provides means of being involved in the community and developing social networks, skills, knowledge, confidence and personal satisfaction, as well as improving the resilience and emotional wellbeing of the volunteer.
Volunteers bring expertise, life skills and knowledge. their diverse cultural backgrounds, experiences, skill and values reflect those of the RCMB.
