If you are a charity, social enterprise, community group or just a group of people creating positive change in New Zealand you are in the right place.


We are currently in beta which means that more features to help you recruit and manage volunteers will be coming in the future. This is just our first version so we welcome any feedback you have so that we can create features you want to see in the future. You can read more about being beta here.

How does Collaborate work?


Step 1

Register as an organisation

First step is to register as an organisation.   You can do this even if you don’t have a volunteer opportunity right now.  By signing up your profile will be ready to go as soon as you do.


Step 2

Submit an opportunity

After registering you will automatically receive an email which details how to post an opportunity.  After registering you can post, edit or close the opportunity at any time by using the opportunity form.

Step 3

Receive applications

As soon as a volunteer expresses an interest in your opportunity and have the skills you’re looking for, you will instantly receive their profile by email.

Step 4

Contact your applicants

From there you can start emailing the volunteers who look perfect for your role.

Step 5

Share your success

We love to hear when a community organisation finds the perfect volunteer.  If you would like to share your story with us please contact us.

Step 6

Keep collaborating

Need more volunteers for other opportunities?  Submit another opportunity!  To do this, just reuse the same form as before and select “I want to add an opportunity.”
