Volunteering Waikato's new online services, introduced in February, are providing great results for the Waikato community. In the first six months close to 2,000 people have applied for more than 2,700 positions through our website.
The feedback from both the community organisations that we support, and those who are seeking a volunteering opportunity has been very positive. The most common feedback is that the system is very simple to use, and far more efficient.
One of the biggest impacts has been the significant rise in the number of people applying for roles outside of Hamilton, which has risen by 64% compared to the same period last year.
If you are part of an organisation that involves volunteers, or if you are looking for a volunteering opportunity - you are on the right website!!
