About us

Wairarapa Volunteer Centre is a subsidiary business of the Wairarapa Community Centre, which is run by a trust. The trustees are a group of volunteers who are pleased to be at the point of expanding service delivery to the local community.

Wairarapa Volunteer Centre is a member of Volunteering New Zealand and the 19th Volunteer Centre established throughout New Zealand. We have received tremendous support and encouragement from our sister centres and VNZ, for which we are immensely grateful for.

We cover the whole of the Wairarapa from Masterton, Carterton, Greytown, Featherston and Martinborough. However as with anything, there are grey areas and cross overs.
