People become Plunket volunteers for many reasons. Some find they learn new skills, others that they can give back something to their community, or even change the lives of children. Many find friendship and support - above all, volunteering is fun!
If you want to help make a difference by donating your time for a cause you believe in, Plunket is a great place to start. We're always looking for new volunteers. Find out how rewarding giving your time and efforts can be and become a volunteer.
When you give the gift of your time, you'll get back as much as you give—maybe even more.
Each year thousands of volunteers give their time, knowledge and skills to support the work of Plunket and help us to achieve our vision of giving every child the best start. The time, talent, and effort that volunteers give means we can continue to provide our support and services to families with young children throughout New Zealand.
