The paper is produced entirely by volunteers who number about 8. They have roles in office work, proofing, typing, editing, printing and distribution. The paper encourages local residents to write contributions as well as reporting community events. It enables local business to advertise. 350 -400 copies are produced each week.

The Welcome Record is an integral part of the Dunolly and district community. It draws the community together promoting community events, sporting achievements and keeps the local community informed about local issues. It offers skills and confidence to volunteers in a nurturing environment. As a non-profit organisation 100% staffed completely by volunteers, any surplus funds are re-distributed either back into the organisation for operational purposes or returned to the local community as grants at the end of the financial year.
