There are a variety of ways that you might consider donating your time to support our work. For many volunteering is a way of giving back to an organisation that may have assisted them or a family member. For others it’s a ‘feel good’ factor knowing that they are making a difference. Whatever your motivation we would welcome you with open arms.
If you would like to offer your experience and skill set in helping Arthritis New Zealand, we would love to hear from you. If you are into; running a 5k to help fundraise for us, speak to an MP on arthritis-related issues, start or join a support group in your local region, or anything else. We have many volunteer roles available and we welcome your ideas.
