You can make a real difference in your Community!
Join the CVC and help yourself by helping others!
The Community Volunteer Centre aims to strengthen communities through volunteering in the North Auckland area. We provide a referral service for individuals who wish to volunteer and a recruitment service for community organisations, groups and businesses who wish to recruit volunteers to assist their organisations work. We also provide general information, advice, support, training and networking opportunities to help individuals and organisations to engage and enhance their services through volunteering.
Whether you have a few hours a week or a few days a month to spare, we can help you to find volunteer work in your local community.

New Volunteers are always welcome!
You may find it useful to think about a few things before you take the first step to volunteer:
1. Why do you want to volunteer?
2. What type of volunteer work is really important to you?
3. How much time do you realistically have to offer?
4. Do you have any skills that organisations / communities can benefit from?
5. How much time can you realistically commit to when volunteering?
Help us to help our Community!
If you feel ready to volunteer in your local community, contact Raeburn House. We can refer you to voluntary positions with organisations that have registered with the Community Volunteer Centre.
We match your interest, skills and availability with the organisations needs to ensure that both you and the organisation benefit from the volunteer placement. Once you have been shortlisted for a voluntary role, the organisation will interview you to discuss the position on offer. If a successful match has been made, you will be provided with a Volunteer Centre induction to ensure that you understand what is expected from you. The organisation hosting you will provide orientation, training, support and supervision to ensure that you are able to carry out your voluntary role successfully. We can also provide you with a written or verbal reference to support your applications for paid employment as required.
