Mackay Regional Council have been members of My Community Directory + Diary since 2018 and in that time we have worked hard together to ensure the growth of community information across the Mackay Region.

Mackay Regional Council were integral to the founding of our volunteering platform, My Give Local. As the idea for my give local was born from work we did with MRC to enable volunteer positions to be displayed on a listing page ( see below): 



Below is a testimonial from the Team Leader Community Programs at Mackay Regional council, Cara Gjuzi on the effect the platform has had in Mackay Regional Council:

“Our membership with My Community Directory means that our region has a localised directory and events diary platform that provides our residents and visiting community with the information they need as they need it with the responsibility placed back on services to manage their own listings and information.  Mackay Regional Council’s role as a result has shifted from managing information to promotion and of the directory and diary to services to get listed and to keep their listing current.  Mackay Regional Council has further partnered with My Community Directory for the development of the My Give Local portal (previously known as the Volunteer Portal).  This component of the directory was the result of a need within the Mackay community to have a place for volunteer organisations to advertise their volunteer needs and opportunities”

We have memberships that suit all organisations, if you think we can help your organisation/council feel free to reach out to our membership team:
