  • The Banyule Volunteer Awards recognises and celebrates the vital contribution volunteers make to Banyule community.

    This year marks the 14th year Council has held the Awards event. A total of 49 individuals and groups were nominated for awards this year and they were recognised at a High Tea on Sunday 19 May.

    Banyule Mayor, Cr Wayne Phillips, said that volunteers make a real difference to our community. Much of the work they do goes unseen, but their selfless commitment brings about tremendous benefits to individuals, organisations and the wider community.

    “The desire and willingness of Banyule’s volunteers to do good for others or simply lend a hand is at the heart of building our strong and resilient community.”

    “I thank all volunteers, their contribution to our community makes a world of difference.” Banyule Mayor, Cr Wayne Phillips said.

    The voluntary service performed in Banyule extends across: the arts, education, emergency services, sports, environment, healthcare, community welfare, aged care, disability services, and more.

    This year the theme for National Volunteer Week is ‘Making a World of Difference’. It represents the millions of volunteers who make a profound impact in their communities and on society.

  • A new social enterprise café at Possum Hollow Playground is making a positive impact thanks to a new partnership between Banyule Council and Araluen.

    When Chancez Café opens in Heidelberg on Thursday 2 May, it will be serving up more than lattes and light meals; it will be serving up opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to gain valuable workplace experience in the hospitality industry.

    The new café is part of Araluen’s hospitality program where up to 15 people will gain food handling, barista and customer service skills at the cafe. The opportunity allows them to make friendships, develop confidence and become more job ready with the aim to be able to work more independently in the future.

    “We’re extremely proud of our partnership with Araluen to create training opportunities at the Chancez Café that build job readiness for people who can experience barriers to employment,” said Banyule Mayor, Cr Wayne Phillips.

    “This initiative plays a vital role in our community; one which not only provides excellent service to coffee enthusiasts but more importantly encourages and enables people with disability to play an active and valuable role in our community.”

    Chancez Café in Possum Hollow, located in the beautiful Warringal Parklands of Heidelberg, will be the fourth café opened by Araluen – an organisation that provides quality of life opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.
