Finding Volunteer Roles

Where you volunteer depends on your own available time, as well as the community organisations’ own availability to take on a volunteer.

Find a volunteer role:

  • Through friends or family – ask around and see what group may need some help.
  • By asking groups you or your family are already associated with.
  • By contacting your regional volunteer centre – in person, by phone or via their website – see below.
  • Online through a volunteering website – see below.

Volunteer Centres

Volunteer Centres work independently of Volunteering New Zealand (VNZ) and are your main point of contact for local and regional volunteering issues and initiatives.
Note that Volunteer Centres are not VNZ branches or regional offices.
