Community Advice operates and maintains an extensive database of clubs, organisations, social and health support services and small businesses in the Alexandra area. If you’d like to be included in our database, then please; CLICK HERE.

Our database entries are updated annually. Summarised copies of the complete database or details of specific request are made available to members of the public on request.


Community Advice operates a flexible roster of approximately 25 volunteers who man the office in Community House from 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday. Volunteers typically work once or twice a week from either 9am to 12am or 12 am to 3pm working in pairs. If you’d like to apply for a volunteer role with us, then please; CLICK HERE.

Community Advice also manages the roster for Meals On Wheels in the Alexandra area. Meals On Wheels volunteers typically deliver meals once every 3 or 4 weeks, picking up the meals which are provided by Dunstan Hospital at Community House. This takes about an hour, so if you’d like to apply for a volunteer role with Meals On Wheels, then please: CLICK HERE.

Community Advice coordinates a volunteer driver service where volunteer drivers pick up members of the community who do not have access to a vehicle or public transport and drive them to medical appointments, library, banks etc. in Alexandra and Clyde in return for a small donation. This operates Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.If you’d like to become a volunteer driver please CLICK HERE
