The Wairarapa Volunteer Centre has been established as a new entity to grow
volunteering across Wairarapa region. Until now the co-ordination of community volunteering had been administered by the Wairarapa Community Centre but it has grown to the point where it needs to be set up independently.
“In the new year we are planning to open up ‘one-day-a-week’ volunteer centre pop-ups in community spaces so that people are empowered to focus on volunteering opportunities to build up the social capital in their own communities”
Regional Manager Jill Greathead
Wairarapa Volunteer Centre received a $5,000 grant made available through The Richard and Doreen Evans Trust
