“Lending a helping hand and being prepared to contribute to your community is part of what it means to be a Kiwi; so we should celebrate all those who give their time and effort to help others, and consider pitching in ourselves” - Community and Voluntary Sector Minister Jo Goodhew
National Volunteer Week has come to a close....but we're still acknowledging all the amazing volunteers who donate their time & skills to helping others!
Each year New Zealand celebrates National Volunteer Week to recognise and celebrate the vital contribution of New Zealand’s approximately 1.2 million volunteers to social development, the economy and the environment.
At the New Zealander of the Year Awards, we ‘re celebrating the time made by volunteers and the invaluable contribution they make to our communities.
We invite and encourage you to show your appreciation and thank a great volunteer by nominating today!
