Volunteers make a significant contribution to the sport and recreation sector in New Zealand. The sector is dependent on the unpaid labour of approximately 500,000 volunteers. This means that for every paid person there are eight volunteers.
The purpose of this document is to provide information, from research, that supports and encourages sport and recreation organisations to develop better volunteer management practices in order to provide quality volunteering experiences and ultimately encourage more New Zealanders to step forward and volunteer.
