Volunteer to make a difference, and the bonus is you’ll feel great too. We can help you find your perfect volunteer role. Some volunteer for the fun of it, some to serve others, some for a sense of purpose. Whatever your ‘why’, Volunteer Nelson is here to support your next step in volunteering.

Supported Migrant Volunteering
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.
Supporting Volunteers with a Disability
Do you have any barriers that might impact on your ability to volunteer? We work with agencies such as Workstar and Workbridge to find volunteer opportunities for everyone.
Want to be part of the driving force behind a cause you support, help guide an organisation’s direction, make use of your skills, gain experience? Have you thought of joining a community board or committee? Take a few minutes to fill out a Governance CV, so that organisations know you are out there and what skills and experience you bring, or join in with some of the governance training currently happening to boost your skills.
