A little or a lot – your gift of time makes a difference

There are many ways you can make a difference by donating your time and talent to Harbour Hospice. Check our current vacancies or become a valued volunteer

Harbour Hospice retail shops recycle donated clothes and homeware back into the community, which raises significant funds for our work. Whether it’s sorting, pricing or selling items, our retail volunteers say they have great fun meeting new people and love helping the Hospice community in a sustainable way.
Assisting our healthcare professionals in looking after patients – whether at Harbour Hospice, in people’s homes or in the community – our volunteers are much needed and appreciated.
The Harbour Hospice fundraising team are integral in generating much-needed donations from organising events and activities throughout the year. If you can’t donate regular time but still want to help out occasionally, being part of the fundraising team might be right for you.
Nourishing our patients at Harbour Hospice with delicious, nutritious food is crucial, so If you would like to help prepare, cook and serve kai (and help us clean up!) we welcome your services as a kitchen volunteer.
Our friendly team of volunteer drivers transport patients and their whānau to Harbour Hospice and other health-related appointments. If you have a current NZ driver’s licence and a clear driving record.
The beautiful gardens at Harbour Hospice are so important for the wellbeing of our patients, whānau and visitors. Join our gardening volunteers to help plant, weed, prune and water these delightful outdoor spaces that put a smile on everyone’s face.
Complementary therapies such as massage and reiki therapy can offer great benefits and comfort to people living with serious illness. If you are qualified, experienced and registered in massage or reiki therapy (preferably with an interest in palliative care and oncology), please enquire here about volunteering for Harbour Hospice.
Come and help our busy receptionists and administrators answer phones, welcome visitors and get through many other office tasks to keep Harbour Hospice running smoothly. Whether you have specific office skills or a welcoming smile and great organisational nouse, we’d love to have you on the team.
If you have a passion for cars, Harbour Hospice has a volunteer job for you! Our doctors and nurses use a pool of vehicles to visit patients and their whānau in the community, and we would love your help to keep them clean and tidy.
