Our Volunteer Capital

Our Volunteer Capital is an evolving action plan to recognise and grow Wellington's volunteer groups.

The 'Our Volunteer Capital' project launches during National Volunteer Week (16 - 22 June 2013).

We are looking for partnerships with businesses, voluntary organisations, employers and the wider community to be part of this initiative. We'd like your ideas on:
