Community Resilience is in the hands of our Volunteers!


Wide Bay Volunteer Resource Association Inc

There is nothing more Australian than Volunteering.

Wide Bay Volunteers are still actively recruiting volunteers for our Members and VIO's, but we have had to change all face to face interviews into phone interviews. We are NOT closed and we are still focusing on helping our community in any way we can. All our services and programs continue.


Stay Safe. Keep Volunteers Safe. Avoid fake news and panic. Look after your neighbours.
