Volunteer Nelson is starting a programme with Multicultural Council, to support migrants to connect with local people in the community through volunteering.
Our focus will be on working with those for whom English is a second language. The programme will involve cross cultural workers and interpreters to support.
We will collaborate with community organisations to put on varied, monthly group volunteering sessions such as gardening, crafts and cooking. There will also be support to match individuals to other volunteering roles in the community.
