New Zealand Red Cross is committed to assisting all people in Aotearoa before, during and after disasters. One of the ways we support the community is with DWST, our Disaster Welfare Support Teams. These teams are made up of highly committed, multi-skilled volunteers, they have a wide variety of professional backgrounds and are trained to deliver essential services during and immediately after a disaster here and around the country.
Keen on finding out more about the Hawkes Bay DWST Team, we are holding an open night for potential new members - Thursday 25 February from 7-9pm at the Red Cross Hastings Service Centre - 823 Heretaunga Street West, Hastings.
There are some criteria to join the team, to find out more please visit - www.redcross.org.nz..., don't meet the criteria, never fear there are heaps of other volunteering opportunities on our website, so go check them out!
