During Avalon’s strategic review and service redesign it became very clear that to create a successful service that can support individuals to live a good life of their choosing Avalon will be required to recruit a team of volunteers to support these objectives. Volunteering management is an area that historically Avalon has performed less than optimally so with this in mind we engaged with Volunteering Bay of Plenty to create a volunteer programme for us. Their strengths and expertise in volunteering has proved invaluable for us and has created the opportunity for Avalon to create a new position focussing on implementing the tool that Volunteering Bay of Plenty  provided to us. The continued support that Volunteering Bay of Plenty  continue to offer Avalon has move forward is appreciated and invaluable.

“The team at Volunteering Bay of Plenty undertake a wide variety of projects that help our community by engaging the Tauranga community to voluntarily contribute their time and efforts. We encourage and seek support their work when we can”
