Volunteering your help...

All of our branches throughout New Zealand are constantly in need of Volunteers for a variety of positions/tasks to help support the thousands of families that use the services of Pregnancy Help. Volunteers are required as phone or fieldworkers, committee members or treasurers, helping to maintain resources as well as knitting, sewing and mending.

Without the thousands of hours that our Volunteers put in each year we would be unable to provide the many varied services that each branch offers and reach those in need.

Becoming a Volunteer is very rewarding and satisfying and is able to be done at a commitment level that suits the Volunteers needs.

We offer an induction training and then on going training and supervision as required or available. When initial training is completed Volunteers are then supported in to their chosen area(s) and often a buddy is put in place to support the new Volunteer as much as required until they feel confident to work on their own.

Pregnancy Help has very dedicated teams of Volunteers in all their branches and would welcome the opportunity of new Volunteers to be part of these teams.

Health & Safety Policy 

If you would like to find out more about "becoming a volunteer" then contact the branch nearest to you for more details or to find out when the next training will be taking place.

The following are some of the skills/qualities that we look for from prospective Volunteers:
 

  • A pleasant personality
  • An ability to communicate with people and keep written records
  • An ability to listen and hear what people are saying
  • A willingness to learn, grow and change
  • Acceptance of others and a desire to help
  • The ability to respect confidentiality
  • The capacity to act in a non-judgmental manner
  • Reliability. We need to be able to rely on the person to undertake training and to carry out assigned duties
  • An awareness of social issues, social justice
