Volunteer Nelson, in collaboration with Multicultural Council Nelson Tasman, runs a volunteer programme to support migrants to connect with local people in the community through volunteering.
The programme connects with cross cultural workers and interpreters to support. We collaborate with community organisations to put on varied group volunteering sessions such as conservation, gardening, crafts and events. There is also support to match individuals to other volunteering roles in the community.
The pictures below show some of the volunteering over the past year.
