Volunteers are the backbone of Home and Family Counselling. We rely on volunteers to help us run our service and have a wonderful tradition of volunteering and there are many ways you can help us reach our goals.
We are renowned for our high quality and innovative events, which wouldn’t be possible without our hard-working Supporter Committee who organise and manage annual functions.
In addition to the events organised by our committee, we also hold two golf tournaments every year and have a bi- annual Counselling Awareness Week. All of these functions require many hands to make light work on the day.
Opportunities exist to help with data entry, research, graphic design and more. It all depends on your availability and skills.
Gardening and Maintenance
We have two counselling centres in Auckland. Both are converted homes and need regular upkeep. Also, our Mt Eden centre is an old villa with a beautiful garden and decking area. We like to maintain a couple of volunteer gardeners who come for an hour per week to keep it looking tidy and peaceful for our clients. We’re also searching for regular volunteers to assist us with lawn mowing [very small area] and perhaps some general exterior work such as gutter cleaning and exterior washing [once or twice per year]. Not essential but we would love someone who could also turn their hand to other small maintenance tasks.
