    There are so many great opportunities where you can join us to help us do some good across our city of Auckland.

    Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch including Diabetes Youth Auckland have wonderful volunteers that regularly help us out with keeping our engine running. Volunteers are an important part of our organisation and their impact cannot be highlighted enough.

    Volunteers learn news skills, have fun in the community and meet new people. We regularly call on volunteers to assist in the office, help collate data and hit the streets as part of our annual events.

    Placement University students and interns who are wanting hands on experience in their areas of study are also welcome to volunteer. From administration right through to photography. Please note, that although we would love to we are unable to offer volunteer work specifically for health promotion or dietitian work.

    Thank you for taking the time to volunteer with us in our mission to support those in Auckland affected by diabetes to live a full and active life. Below are some opportunities that we have coming up.


    Recognition of our Volunteers

    The late John Nesfield, our past Patron established the John Nesfield award and was first awarded at our Volunteer Recognition Function on 7th December 2001. The Award is presented each year to the person or organisation that has made the most significant contribution to Diabetes NZ Auckland Branch as a Volunteer during the year.

    Those eligible include committee members including the Diabetes Youth Auckland committee, Support Group Coordinators, Office volunteers, Youth event volunteers and others who have helped in a voluntary capacity.

    You can nominate those who you believe who have gone above and beyond as a volunteer and will be awarded at our recognition event at the end of the year. A collective decision is made by the Branch Manager and other staff and all nominations are taken into account for the year.

    Please complete this form to nominate a great volunteer.

    Join us at the Auckland Marathon

    Every year we get a great bunch of people together to help cheer on our team and every year we have an amazing cheer squad. If you have a warm smile, a great cheer and love to put yourself out there let us know and we can welcome you into our cheer squad! We will provide t-shirts, wigs and accessories, noise makers and a bite to eat to keep you going.

    If the cheer squad isn’t your thing you can look after our tent site where participants will take a load off after they cross the finish line. The job here is to make sure they’re feed and watered and to keep an eye on anyone from Team Diabetes yet to make their way to our site. If this sounds like you – fill out the forms below and send them through!
