HOPE is seeking both local and online volunteers to help maintain high levels of activity in areas including projects, events, displays, admin and media/publications. 

Also seeking members and supporters to fill vacancies including Secretary, Treasurer, Media Officers and Publication Team members. 

If you can help in anyway please call the HOPE office on 4639 2135 or via email at

It's official! Volunteering makes you happy. Research has shown that just a few hours of volunteering can make a difference to mood and happiness. Better still, sustained volunteering is associated with improved mental health. Volunteers sleep better, are healthier, and have a greater sense of well-being than those who don't volunteer. In-fact, the altruistic emotions and behaviours associated with volunteering can even help you live longer. 

Environmental volunteering benefits the whole community and is a great way to get outdoors and experience our unique natural environment. Volunteers are rewarded with the knowledge that they are making a meaningful contribution to preserving our unique and natural surroundings while learning new skills and meeting like-minded people. 

National groups such as Householder's Options to Protect the Environment and Landcare Australia offer various environmental volunteering opportunities from administration through to various landcare activities such as weed eradication and re-planting programs.
