How volunteers make a difference

 From its inception as a Day Care Centre in the 1970s, Wharekaka has been reliant on volunteer interest, capacity and input from the South Wairarapa Community.

The consistent input of skilled and committed volunteer Board Members provides the governance and oversight to enable professional staff to deliver their services to residents.

The Auxiliary provides support for residents and staff through:

  • fundraising
  • activities in the Home
  • a weekly afternoon tea service which frees staff for an hour for team meetings or training

Volunteers also support the Meals on Wheels service which would not have started in South Wairarapa without their commitment

They assist the Activities Officer in providing support for pastimes and outings, from manicures to indoor bowls!
