Corporate volunteering

Engage your workforce and connect with people

Volunteers make our work possible. Many of the 10,000+ Kiwis who volunteer for New Zealand Red Cross are trained for specific programmes and make an incredible difference to people in need - like refugee resettlement support, driver training for former refugees, disaster response volunteers and meals on wheels delivery drivers. These volunteering opportunities are some of the most fulfilling and rewarding around.

At key times throughout the year we also offer more practical, team-based volunteering opportunities for our partners – most significantly for our Red Cross Appeal as well as seasonal donation drives in support of our Red Cross Shops.

While spontaneous volunteering opportunities are more difficult to accommodate because of the specialist nature of our work, we do offer occasional opportunities throughout the year for charity events. We are also developing new opportunities that bring together training and volunteering to strengthen wellbeing, resilience and disaster preparedness. 

 If you have skills to share or volunteering ideas, get in touch.
