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.

Our major event where we need every volunteer possible is our Annual Appeal. The week long activity culminates in a Street Day across the county and having communities out and about wearing our lovely orange colours, shaking buckets not only raises money but also awareness.

There are also on-going local activities that you may be interested in. These range from assisting at land and water based exercise classes to hosting peer support groups, popping into our Regional Office to provide support etc.

Why we need volunteers

“Volunteers are vital to our work. Without the many volunteers who help us in so many different ways, such as collecting during our annual appeal, helping with exercise classes, driving, volunteering at children’s camps, assisting at seminars, working in our offices, being on support groups, supporting us through committees, promoting our services, and much more, Arthritis New Zealand would be unable to provide its wide level of support to the 530,000 New Zealanders living with arthritis.”

Sandra Kirby, Chief Executive, Arthritis New Zealand
