Together, Volunteer NZ and the network of Volunteer Centres, want to let you know how we are working collectively with all local community groups to support the response to the management of COVID-19. We commend and value the community based volunteer response that is mobilising and want to provide both organisations and members of the public wishing to volunteer with practical advice and guidance, bearing in mind that as a community our main task is to minimise the spread of coronavirus.
We are working to make sure the most vulnerable members of our communities are looked after during this time. We are doing this in the following ways:
- Prioritising recruitment, support and promotion of volunteer roles related to the COVID-19 response
- Communicating with local volunteers and organisations to let them know what is happening and connect them where relevant
- Providing advice and guidance on volunteering safely when dealing with vulnerable members of the public
- Sharing stories of those volunteering and raising awareness of the positive impact of volunteers
We are looking for arising our fund to look after the helpless people during COVID -19
