There are many different volunteer roles within Plunket, and we can help you achieve success both personally and as a volunteer within these roles.
Your Community Services Team can tell you about Plunket, its policies and objectives, how to run appeals, or even how to familiarise yourself with Māori protocols .
Plunket recognises the contribution of its volunteers and provides help and guidance for you when you need it.
Plunket has built and sustained a highly skilled and proactive volunteer base. Volunteers can be involved in providing community support and/or services, or as governors in their role as members of Area Boards.
