Volunteering opportunities

How you can get involved

Age Concern New Zealand is lucky enough to have a team of wonderful volunteers who help with one-off projects and ongoing work.  Whether they work off-site or in the office, volunteers are very much part of our family – our relationships continue after they’ve moved on to other opportunities.  

Volunteers often help us with administration and event management, and are also involved in governance and writing blogs.  However, if you have skills or experience in other areas and are interested in helping Age Concern to promote dignity, wellbeing, equity and respect for older people, we may have projects you can assist with.  Either way, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteers can look at the work we do from a fresh viewpoint, which makes their contribution especially valuable.  We aim to be an inclusive organisation and involve a diverse range of people who add value and depth to our work. 

We also recognise the benefits of volunteering for our volunteers. We acknowledge our team members’ individual needs, and, where possible, provide volunteers with experiences and opportunities to help them gain skills they require.
