We have a new volunteer programme that we're very excited to share with you! In this role, you will offer social support to people claiming asylum in the Auckland region through:
• Providing local orientation and information about the area/city/country
• Assisting clients to connect with other services and agencies
• Spending time together and getting to know more about each other and your cultures
• Advocating for people to access their entitlements if needed

Requirements:
You’ll need to be familiar with your local area, open to working cross culturally, be resourceful and good at taking initiative.

Comprehensive training will be provided, including key concepts relating to asylum, intercultural communication, and entitlements.
Training takes approximately 12 hours and is delivered over several evenings and/or weekends.

Police vetting, reference check, and pre-training interview are required for this role.



Time commitment:
Volunteers need to commit at least a few hours a week, but there are no set time shifts. The time you spend with a family/individual will vary week to week, so you’ll need to be flexible and work as part of a team.
To apply for this role, you will need to commit to volunteer for a period of at least three months.

Are you looking for a fun, family activity this summer?

Gather your whanau and head to Devonport for the Staycation Scavenger Hunt!

Up until 31 March, New Zealand Red Cross are running a shop-window scavenger hunt on Victoria Road, Devonport for families to enjoy!

The scavenger hunt is based on the not-so-true story of Kanoa the clumsy Kākāpō, who has lost 10 holiday items in 10 different shop windows. Kanoa needs your help to find her missing items so she can enjoy her kiwi summer staycation to Devonport! Find all 10 and you can enter the prize draw to win some amazing prizes too!

Purchase your scavenger hunt map for $4 from Devonport library or from the New Zealand Red Cross website - 100% of the proceeds of the shop-window scavenger Hunt will go to New Zealand Red Cross!

A perfect activity for the school holidays or a sunny Saturday afternoon!
