Become a volunteer

We have a team of volunteers who assist in a variety of ways. We are always grateful for any administration and accounts/marketing support and also welcome programme volunteers into many of our therapy groups.

DTNZ-Oranga_281We welcome applications from Administration volunteers who have an excellent grasp of English and computer skills. We ask for a commitment to work with us for at least 6 months and we provide training and support which can be helpful for those wishing to transition to paid work in the future, as well as those who are able to give their time to a worthy cause.

Programme volunteers need to make a firm commitment to work with us for a minimum of two terms (6 months), and must go through an intake procedure.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email our Programmes Coordinator and:

  • express your interest in volunteering as an Admin/Accounts/Marketing Assistant, or Arts/Dance Therapy Assistant
  • attach your CV
  • confirm that you would be available to volunteer for a minimum of six months (for the Admin/Accounts/Marketing Assistant role this would be twice a week from 9:30am to 6pm, and for the Arts/Dance Therapy Assistants it would be at least once a week for two hours)
  • download, complete and attach section 2 of this police check
  • attach copies of two forms of identification: one being your passport or birth certificate and the other being your drivers licence, 18 + card or student/employee ID card (we work with children and vulnerable populations and it is our policy to perform a police check on all potential staff and volunteers).
