Volunteer with us

Opportunities at the City

We encourage people to do something good for their local community through volunteering. You can make new friends, learn new skills or help someone in need with one of our many projects when you become a volunteer with us, including:  

  • delivering Meals on Wheels
  • tutoring/assisting at one of our spaces
  • taking part in a We Heart Sydney Park bushcare session
  • providing information to tourists and locals.

Opportunities to volunteer are updated on this page when they arise.

Be sure to also view our volunteer and donation directory of not-for-profit organisations.

Several websites list other volunteering opportunities in the City and surrounding areas. The Centre for Volunteering has some great stories about volunteering.

Current projects seeking volunteers

Volunteer for Sydney NYE

Volunteer applications are now open for 2016 Sydney New Year's Eve. Applications close on 14 November.

Sydney ambassadors

Sydney ambassadors provide visitor information services to international cruise ship passengers arriving at the Overseas Passenger Terminal or White Bay Terminal.

Sydney Park bushcare

We're looking for keen green thumbs to join our volunteer bushcare group. Any time you give will help Sydney Park thrive. By weeding and planting, you'll create new homes for native wildlife and keep the park beautiful.

Meals On Wheels volunteers

Our Meals on Wheels volunteers work in pairs to deliver prepared meals to our clients at home on weekdays. The service operates across numerous suburbs within the City's local area.

Volunteer for City spaces

We sometimes have volunteer positions available at our community centres for tutors, podiatry reception assistants, bus assistants and events assistants. An ability to speak a community language is highly regarded.

Community gardens

Even if you don’t have the space or resources, you can still keep your green thumbs busy by getting involved with a community garden. Find a garden near you and get in touch to volunteer.

Information services

​​Our volunteers provide information to tourists and locals from our information booths and a meet ‘n’ greet service for international cruise ship passengers.
