Can you help us?

Dunedin Parents Centre is an organisation run by parents for parents. Our aim is to support and help our families in the local community. We currently host a variety of sessions from the centre, however we would love to do more.

The projects we want to achieve within the short to medium term are:

We want to clean and catalogue our playgroup toys. Can you spare an hour or two to help us with this. You will be able to get to know us a little more and get a say in any toys we need to recycle buy.

If you feel you can help us with the above or would be able to help us on a regular or ad hoc basis, then please can you contact one of our volunteers or contact us at dunedin@parentscentre.org.nz.

Volunteering offers an opportunity to:

  • Share your knowledge, skills, ideas and opinions
  • Develop skills useful for a paid career, personal improvement or parenting
  • Help other new parents by supporting and valuing their role
  • Make friends and enjoy the company of other adults in the same boat
  • Meet with centres from within the Southern Region for support and networking
  • Spend at least one evening a month out on your own without your children!
  • Participate in regular committee social get-togethers

We value our volunteers and respect individual levels of commitment. We are very flexible – as parents ourselves, we understand the need for families to come first.

Committee meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of every month and we welcome all centre members to come along in whatever capacity you wish to offer your assistance.
