Volunteering is good for the health of the community and usually contributes to the health of the volunteer as well. Volunteers talk about positive feelings of participation while enjoying the learning and social opportunities offered by the experience.

Castlemaine District Community Health is fortunate to have people that donate their time and energy to the success of the organisation. We are grateful to approximately 80 volunteers who assist with the centre’s programs and activities, including tai chi, strength training, Board members, Youth Mentors, administration and transport, just to name a few. These unpaid workers are of benefit to the organisation and ultimately the community too, helping us to provide a comprehensive range of services to the people of Mount Alexander Shire. We try to ensure that volunteers have a rewarding and enjoyable experience at Castlemaine District Community Health.
