How do Volunteer Central services work?
Time to shine, time to take stock, time to shape our future
"The impacts of COVID-19 on business, employment and the economy are well-publicised. The impact on the tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector has been equally felt and is now well documented. We have all the data we need to make some urgent decisions about reviving and reshaping the sector.
This report details the findings of a survey of Aotearoa New Zealand’s tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector in May-June 2020 on the impacts of COVID-19 (as recorded in Levels 2 and 1 of lockdown).
The research is a partnership between the Centre for Social Impact, Hui E! Community Aotearoa, Philanthropy New Zealand, and Volunteering New Zealand." - Hui E!

State of Volunteering Report 2020
"Volunteering New Zealand recently surveyed more than 3,000 people across the community and voluntary sector. They include community leaders, researchers and thought leaders, managers of voluntary organisations, and frontline volunteers. Their stories form the backbone of this report.
This report presents a snapshot of the state of volunteering in Aotearoa New Zealand at a critical point in the nation’s history—just prior to the Level 4 lockdown being imposed as the Covid-19 pandemic hit our shores.
The report is supported by quantitative data from official sources, as well as responses received from the State of Volunteering online survey. For the first time, the Volunteering New Zealand State of Volunteering report is underpinned by the voices and opinions of volunteers and volunteer involving organisations." - VNZ
