Volunteers, Selwyn Centres, Auckland, Northland and Waikato

Selwyn Centres around Auckland, Northland and the Waikato are looking for volunteers to assist in running their weekly activity sessions for older people. The Centres provide a varied, fun programme offering companionship, social games, advice and support for people over the age of 65 who live in the local community. As a Centre volunteer, you’ll welcome guests, assist the Selwyn Centre coordinator with the range of social activities, help with morning tea preparations and generally ensure that guests enjoy themselves in a safe and caring environment. You’ll be rostered on one morning once or twice a month, from around 9.30am to just after midday.

If you enjoy interacting with older people and would like to make a difference in your community, speak to your local Selwyn Centre coordinator about volunteering (see www.selwynfoundation.org.nz/community/social-engagement/selwyn-centres/ for contact details).

The Selwyn Centres are a partnership between the Anglican Diocese and The Selwyn Foundation.
