I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie Devenish from Volunteer Wellington last week to learn more about his organisation and explore ways in which we can work together.
Volunteer Wellington has offices in the Wellington CBD, Porirua and the Hutt Valley where they interview interested volunteers and place them with member organisations.
As well as this they organise employee volunteering, provide good practice to manage volunteers and keep members updated on the latest info and events.
At Sub Urban Co-Working we provide places that bring together people that have been working in isolation (usually from home) to create local collaborative working communities. If there are desk based volunteers working from home we are very interested in supporting their work by enabling them to be part of our community.
We also have a number of people popping into Sub Urban looking for opportunities to contribute by volunteering - its great to know where to refer these keen people on to!
If you are interested in volunteering with Volunteer Wellington please feel free to pop into Sub Urban in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre - we now have Volunteer Wellington leaflets - or do check out their website www.volunteerwellington.nz
