This toolkit has information and resources to help your brigade to recruit new volunteers. If you would like support, have questions, or suggestions (including additional resources) for the toolkit, please email us at

Due to a significant rise in requests for volunteer attraction support, we ask for at least two months’ notice for in-depth support. We still have capacity to answer enquiries, provide advice, and order resources for your brigade.

If you have run a successful promotion, please let us know! We would love to share your successes and look forward to including photos and ideas from across New Zealand.
