Now that we have moved to the Traffic Light Protection System we are delighted to welcome volunteers back to our programmes. Please note all volunteers will be required to be fully vaccinated and scan their Vaccine Passport when volunteering.

Group Volunteering Wellington


Our group volunteers play a significant role in helping to create a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families. In Wellington we have a range of opportunities available.

Family Dinners (Tuesdays and Thursdays 4.00pm – 8.00pm)

A rewarding team volunteering experience – you’ll be cooking dinner for 50+ people – so expect a fast-paced afternoon. Your team will cook, serve dinner and clean up whilst getting to interact with families and having dinner yourselves. Suitable for groups of 6 – 9 people. You can choose for RMHC to create the menu and organise the ingredients (cost associated) or you can create your own menu (by agreement) and bring your ingredients.

Please note: Any Family Dinner booking cancelled within 48 hours of your confirmed date will be forfeited and non-refundable. Ingredients will already have been purchased, and meals will need to be provided to families.

Baking (Wednesdays, 10.00am – 2.00pm)

Get a group together to help out with simple baking and cooking requirements in the kitchen. Each session will vary based on the food needs at the House on the day, but usually, this will involve baking a variety of yummy treats for the families. All recipes and ingredients are provided so all you need to do is gather your team of volunteers! Suitable for groups of 6 – 9 people. There is an extra cost associated with this session.

Working Bee (Wednesdays, 10.00am – 2.00pm)

If you’re up for anything that will be helpful to the families this is the option for you. Your activity will be determined the week you volunteer based on needs in the House. From cleaning to organising kitchens, gardening or washing vehicles, and helping with fundraising event preparations. Suitable for groups of up to 8 people. There is no extra cost associated with this session.

Volunteer Testimonials

“At Ray White we have regularly cooked evening meals, each time we are inspired by the positivity of these people faced with adversity. Cooking and planning the meals has not only been extremely rewarding but it has also been great for team building and office morale.” – Tracy Logan, Ray White Wellington.

“If you like cooking, volunteering at RMHC New Zealand is a great opportunity to give back to the community. They have great facilities and the families are always very grateful for a warm meal at the end of a tough day. Cooking together is also a great way to get to know each other as a group.” – Ben Pfeifer, Xero
