We are committed to working collaboratively with decision makers to ensure that the diverse needs of volunteers, organisations that engage volunteers, and the wider volunteering eco-system are represented in the development of policies, regulations and practice.

Advocacy and submissions on volunteering policy topics are part of our core business. Three key documents:

  • The Government Policy on Volunteering 2002 here.
  • Volunteering New Zealand 2020 Election manifesto here
  • Volunteering New Zealand Briefing to Community and Voluntary Minister 2020 here.
