Our work is vital to ensuring volunteer-involving organisations can engage, manage and retain the strong, effective volunteer workforce necessary to advance their mission and cause. We support volunteer participation that is inclusive, transformative, flexible and meaningful. We inform policy, good practice, research and development, regulation and decision-making that supports the sustainability and advancement of volunteering.
We actively campaign that investing in volunteering is fundamental to the continued prosperity of Wellington. The volunteering sector is a vital force that fuels the economy, connects and enriches the lives of those in the Wellington region, builds social and cultural value, and protects the environment.
Volunteer Wellington is the ‘vital link’ within the community infrastructure of greater Wellington. Volunteer Wellington connects people and communities, provides professional development, consultancy and support services. Volunteer Wellington is continually building the capacity and capability of the Wellington community and voluntary sector.
