Tūao Aotearoa Volunteering New Zealand is an association of volunteer centres, and national and regional organisations with a commitment to volunteering in Aotearoa New Zealand.

They started in 2001, the International Year of the Volunteer. The sector, Volunteer Centres and the Department of Internal Affairs were all part of our creation, and their purpose is to be a national voice for volunteering.

Volunteering New Zealand's aspiration for Aotearoa New Zealand is that volunteering is valued as part of who we are as a nation. We thrive and are enriched by the goodwill of volunteers in every community and their contribution and impact is recognised and supported.
