Clunes is a strong and dynamic community, and its Neighbourhood House aims to provide a focal point for community connection, involvement, and support. 


The pandemic presented many challenges. It also brought with it opportunities to be agile as a community in meeting those challenges—so much so that Neighbourhood House and the people of Clunes are more than thriving; they are growing!

There’s still work to do. Meeting community needs and securing the continuing strength and vitality of our community depends upon many individuals working together—often as volunteers. 


Pre-pandemic saw volunteering at 42% across the state, with 2.3 million Victorians over the age of 15 years getting involved in their local and wider communities by volunteering. Covid saw those numbers halved. It has changed the way we do things in many instances. Fortunately, in Clunes, we aren’t shy about tackling challenges differently. 

The magic lies in the relationship that is formed to ensure that each volunteer and the organisation find mutual benefit.  For many, if this is formed well, it marks a relationship that can extend for years.

This is a wonderful time for you to get involved. By volunteering, you will be making a difference in the lives of those you support through your work, those you volunteer with, and—what’s just as important—you’ll be making a positive impact in your own life too. 

The impact people have on their community through volunteering has always mattered, but the last few years have highlighted to us all, just how important volunteering is for our community – as well as for ourselves.
