Volunteering Waikato was established in 1993 and has two main objectives - to ensure community groups get the volunteers they need, and to ensure that volunteers get the most out of their decision to give their time, energy and passion.
We do this by matching volunteers with the organisations where they will have the greatest impact, enjoyment and sense of contribution.
We provide services throughout the Waikato Region including the Waikato, Waipa, Thames/Coromandel, Hauraki, Matamata/Piako, Otorohanga, Waitomo, South Waikato and Taupo Districts.
Volunteering Waikato has a strong focus on ''best practice'' in volunteer management. This is reflected in our own work, and in our expectation of other organisations that work with volunteers.
- INCLUSIVENESS: We recognise and value diversity and all forms of volunteering
- INTEGRITY: At all times we act professionally, being honest and transparent
- ACCOUNTABILITY: We accept our individual and collective responsibilities as we meet our commitments
- EXCELLENCE: We strive to be outstanding in all that we do
