Community Groups & Services
Regional areas like the West Coast rely heavily on service groups and community organisations to fundraise, offer services and host events. In all West Coast towns these groups form a large part of the community and are always willing to accept new members and volunteers, so get involved! For those in need, confidentiality is also very important to community service groups.
The lists below offer a wide range of services and m ore information, including contact people and service details for the groups, can be found in the West Coast Directory.
The volunteer work carried out by Service Groups on the West Coast is a vital ingredient in making our community what it is. Many West Coasters see involvement in such groups as a privilege and go about their work silently, always ready to give a helping hand.
