Organisation Feedback

WHAT SOME OF OUR ORGANISATIONS HAVE TO SAY:

“Right from day one of opening last year, Volunteer Kapiti has been absolutely wonderful in referring volunteers to us. They have been both very prompt and very efficient. We have been delighted to work with them, as our volunteers play a very important role in our ability to deliver the best service we can to the elderly in our community.”

Age Concern

“Just a brief note to say how thrilled we have been with the response we have had from listing with your volunteer centre. We have a number of volunteers who were introduced through your centre and who have offered their support and are currently assisting at our club with all sorts of activities. As you are aware, we like many other charitable groups and clubs can only survive with the support of our members, the good will of the public and most importantly volunteers such as you facilitate.

One very pleasing aspect has been the calibre of the volunteers, not only have they been happy to undertake almost any of the tasks that are required on a daily basis in a club such as ours but their work ethic has been remarkable. All have wonderful dispositions and are a real pleasure to have helping at the club.

We are so grateful to be able to be part of your volunteer service and I am sure that other groups in our community will also benefit from the great job you are doing.”

Kapiti Vaulting Club

“I am writing in support of Volunteer Kapiti. This organisation has been very helpful to our college in the past. They provided me with many volunteers to help as reader writers for dyslexic students at our college. These volunteers were used for various assessments and exams. I hope to use them again this year for assessments and exams nearer the end of the year.

I cannot speak highly enough of them and wish them well in the future.”

“We have been delighted with the positive response from Volunteer Kapiti. The positive, encouraging and enthusiastic manner in which all requests are managed enables the organisation making the request to be as confident as possible of a positive result. The Trust’s experience of using a volunteer proved beneficial not only to us but also the volunteer – she had the experience of working with children in a learning situation that was fun and relaxed. We had the advantage of an adult whose profession was architecture thus enabling the children to gain from her skill base. This was a very positive experience for both of us.

This community has much to gain from the support of Volunteer Kapiti.”

“As you can see above Volunteer Kapiti has made a huge contribution to the establishment of the after Disaster Survival Trust and indirectly to all New Zealand communities. They have been instrumental in helping to birth something important and significant. With Volunteer Kapiti’s assistance we have started to gain real momentum towards our goals. Indirectly they may have helped save lives and they have definitely improved the well being and protection of future disaster victims in New Zealand.”

“My observation is that Volunteer Kapiti is making a large contribution to the Kapiti community. From a personal aspect the Waikanae Cameo Society Inc, as a member of volunteer Kapiti, has already had two very efficient volunteers directed to us and we look forward to further assistance in the future.”

“As a member of the Association we have used their service to assist us in recruiting volunteers for our organisation. Over the last couple of years they have provided us with some excellent applicants and think they provide a valuable service in the Kapiti area.”
