Caritas is also supported by volunteers throughout the country and overseas. From those that sit on our governance committees, to those involved at the parish and school level. We and the many communities that we work with are indebted to all those that give their time and effort to help Caritas work for a world free of poverty and injustice. Please email us if you would like to volunteer in New Zealand, or read about our Catholic Volunteers Overseas.
