Free Resources for Organisations Relying on Volunteers

Volunteer for Knox and Knox City Council recognise that the past 12 to 18 months have been very difficult for many not-for-profit organisations and groups who rely so heavily on the support of volunteers. To help you acknowledge your amazing volunteers and recruit new ones, we have worked together to develop a set of resources for you to use.

We recently mailed you posters and window decals for your office or clubroom and now have two digital packs available for you to download, including social media tiles, digital banners and direct mail template for you to use to thank your existing volunteers and also promote for new ones.

Update on COVID-19 2021

Volunteer for Knox would like to assure our registered volunteers and services that we are operating via telephone, email and online.  Volunteers and Community Organisations are vital and are needed more than ever when lockdowns have lifted. For the most up to date information on Covid-19 go to www.health.gov.au.

About Volunteer for Knox

Volunteer for Knox is jointly governed through a partnership between the five Knox Neighbourhood Houses – Coonara Community House, The Basin Community House, Rowville Neighbourhood Learning Centre, Mountain District Learning Centre and Orana Neighbourhood House. The Volunteer Resource Centre is funded by Knox City Council and its purpose is to increase volunteering opportunities for organisations and individuals in Knox. Volunteer for Knox will plan, implement and evaluate high quality services that result in public recognition of the value of volunteering for Knox.
