Volunteer Wellington – Your Community Connector
Volunteer Wellington powers the community organisations in the Wellington region. We connect people with volunteer opportunities to contribute to our society in meaningful ways.
Each year, we recruit and refer over 2700 volunteers to our 400 not-for-profit member organisations, from Accent Learning to Zealandia. We help them to design the best possible volunteer programmes, ensuring they are inclusive, safe and make the most of what people offer. We provide professional development, run peer support groups, networking events, and mentoring so our community organisations can achieve their mission.
We also work with businesses through our Employee Volunteering programme, who contribute their skills, making a direct, and positive contribution through volunteering. In 2017, 1000 employees contributed to over 100 different community projects.
We do all this with a paid staff of eight part-timers and approximately 50 volunteers. We’re very proud of our work and the way we change people’s lives.
We believe in a more connected and inclusive society, and so do our individual supporters!
Your regular gift will change lives and strengthen the community and voluntary sector.
Volunteer Wellington champions volunteering and builds the capacity and capability of communities in greater Wellington. We work with 400+ community based organisations, providing the essential volunteer workforce needed to sustain their services. We provide advice, mentoring and professional development in the management of volunteers to enhance the experience for both the organisation and the volunteer.
