Training for volunteers and volunteer organisations

Free training for volunteers

Council provides free training to volunteer-led Moreland community groups. The aim of the training is to educate and support the development of groups to become sustainable.

The training is for volunteers to gain knowledge and skills to then implement and help the group become sustainable.

The next round of training is scheduled for March 2018.
