With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...
We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.
New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.
Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
Volunteer Marlborough offers a range of services to support volunteering in our community (see yesterday's post) but we would like to tell you about our four big programs:
1. Youth on Boards - a project aimed at increasing the number of youth volunteers (aged 16 to 24) who are recruited, trained, matched, and effectively engaged in decision-making roles on non-profit boards. Getting young people involved in governance is a big passion of ours because re recognise that young people can and should help to shape the future of the Marlborough region.
2. Supported volunteering - An extension of our standard recruitment service but with a focus on the inclusion of people living with disabilities and long-term health conditions (physical and mental). Our Supported Volunteering program matches a volunteer who has a disability or health condition with a co-volunteer and then matches the pair with a suitable volunteer role.
3. Group volunteering - Volunteering is a great group activity, whether it's for a team-building day, a day out with the extended whanau, or a christmas party with a twist. Volunteer Marlborough can help match your group with a volunteering opportunity.
4. Reverse Recruitment - we've taken our recruitment service and flipped it; now we can find a volunteering role to match YOU!
To find out more, or to join in on one of these programs, send us a message, call/txt 021478330, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, you can get full info on all available roles (and apply online) at marl.volunteermatch.org.nz...
