National Volunteer Week 2017

National Volunteer Week (NVW) 2017will be held from 18 to 24 June.

Volunteering is good for you, your community and for the social development of the country because it helps build the "social fabric" that keeps us connected and engaged in our world.

We all have skills that can help others. This year’s theme is“Live, laugh, share--Volunteer” or “Kia ringa hora: Me mahi tūao.” This positive message is about celebrating what volunteers bring to their communities. It is important to recognise volunteering and the place it has in keeping our communities strong and healthy.

National Volunteer Week is a great opportunity to start volunteering or, if you already volunteer, it’s a great time to invite a friend to join you.
