Pregnancy Help Dunedin Board Member

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity which helps to support the well-being/ hauora of families whānau; and also helps to care for care for Papatūānuku by facilitating the reusing of a very large amount of baby items each year?

Here's what one of their Board Members, Jessica says about volunteering with Pregnancy Help:
'It has been very rewarding personally being able to work with an organisation that does such great mahi in our community – I feel really proud to be associated with PH and it's good to be able to give back to the community in a small way. It's also excellent governance experience being part of a Board/Executive Committee and anyone coming on board would learn and develop those governance skills. Plus I've met some great other people!'

Now for some more details:
For the past 40 years Pregnancy Help have been providing information, advice, and practical support to families whānau in Ōtepoti Dunedin.
An important part of us being able to do this has been the mahi of our Board Members.
These are the people who oversee what we do; make decisions about our strategic direction; help us to be accountable for what we are doing; help us to set a high standard in what we do; and act as an employer.

They help us to maintain our kaupapa to care about people; to respect the principles of Te Titiri o Waitangi; to appreciate, celebrate, and respect the wonderful diversity of individuals and families whānau; and to recognise that what we do is always a work in progress – we’re on an ongoing learning and growing journey.

If you think that you might like to be part of our team, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are more than happy to answer any questions that you might have, and we can arrange a meeting with one of our current Board Members either online or in person.


Board Members meet monthly via Teams or Zoom (usually on Thursday evenings), and they also provide occasional input and feedback via email in between meetings. Face to face catch ups are held periodically so Board Members can get to know each other (These are usually of a social nature, and are optional to attend).

A Ministry of Justice background check is required for this role.

Time commitment

A couple of hours per month.
