Getting involved in the community is beneficial for your mind, body and overall wellbeing. Participating in a group or an event within your local area creates an important sense of connection. Some ways to get involved include:
Get on Board Program – Platform Tours
This program aims to assist seniors in gaining confidence in accessing public transport and enable independence by improving their ability to connect with services, activities, friends and family. Platform tours of local public transport services are hosted by the City, in partnership with the Public Transport Authority, and are available at various times throughout the year and include complimentary coffee/tea/refreshment at a local cafe.
The next series of Get on Board Platform Tours will be scheduled shortly. For more information please contact the City via email.
There are a range of clubs, community and hobby groups throughout the City. To find out who they are and where they are located, visit the City’s Community Directory.
Joondalup Volunteer Resource Centre (JVRC)
The JVRC is located inside Whitford Library and specialises in connecting community members with their perfect volunteer role, by matching skills, interest and availability with vacant volunteer roles.
Recently expanded to an all-year-round program, the Meet-Your-Neighbour Project aims to build a more connected, safer and inclusive community by encouraging residents to host small gatherings within their local neighbourhoods.
The City offers a wide range of events all year round including the Joondalup Festival, Positive Ageing events, the Sunday Serenades concert series, art exhibitions, youth music events, markets and outdoor summer concerts. View the City’s events calendar for details.
