Volunteering in response to Covid 19
Unless you are an essential worker or volunteer, the best way you can help others is by staying home and helping people from there.
Volunteering Centre Network
Volunteer Centres around New Zealand are connecting volunteers with organisations in their communities seeking volunteers. They have volunteer matching processes where individuals can apply online, or complete an expression of interest for volunteer opportunities during COVID-19. The network of Volunteer Centres are expecting many COVID-19 related roles in the coming days. Some roles will be directly related to COVID-19 support.
Connect with web based volunteer opportunity sites
Other organisations may be looking for volunteers to support them remotely at this time, or may have Covid response related roles, and these could be advertised on online volunteer recruitment sites. Connect with online volunteer opportunities sites now.
Connect with organisations
If there is a specific organization or cause you are interested in supporting, check their website for information on the support they are currently seeking.
Please be patient and flexible at this time as volunteer roles and community organization needs are changing rapidly. Expect response times to be slower than normal as non-profits and their staff adjust to new work arrangements and prepare for new and rapidly evolving service realities.
