Onewa Parents Centre is run by a committee of parents just like you. We believe it’s important to provide expectant and new parents with access to quality childbirth education, coffee and support groups and information for each stage of their child’s development. Of course, none of it would be possible without a dedicated team of volunteers who organise and coordinate our classes, run events, communicate with our members and support the administration of our Centre.

People volunteer for a range of reasons and get a great variety of benefits back – social contacts, the opportunity to keep work skills current and develop new skills, an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of parenting in our community and of course, it’s fun!

If you’re interested in finding out more about volunteering with Onewa Parents Centre please email us at onewa@parentscentre.org.nz and a committee member will get in touch to talk about how you can get involved. We are always looking for motivated people to join our team, so we would love to hear from you.
