What Is A Community Group?
A Community Group is a group of people who come together to pursue a common cause or interest for the good of their community. A community can be a geographic area, ie Northam, or it can be group of like-minded people, ie seniors or sport. Community groups are run and managed by volunteers, and are bound by their own constitution or set of rules.
Please visit www.volunteeringwa.org.au which has a free service where Community Groups can list their requirements for volunteers, and volunteers can search for positions within their area / interests.
The Shire of Northam Website, Noticeboard, Newsletter and Facebook page are provided to promote programs, events and activities that are initiated by the Shire of Northam.

Please notify the community development team via email if you have an event planned that may be eligible for promotion on the Shire website.
