Volunteering with the Citizens Advice Bureau provides a stimulating and rewarding opportunity to people wanting to have a positive impact on the lives of others.  The Remuera Eastern/Bays Bureau is currently looking for volunteers who can train as interviewers in October, enquiries can be made online or at 4 Victoria Avenue, Remuera. 

Changes are coming for the Bureau, with the announcement that 4 Victoria Ave will be sold.  They are continuing to operate as usual in the meantime while looking for a new venue.  The organisation is committed to providing a service in the area, and hopes they can successfully relocate with the assistance of the Orakei Local Board.

Every Wednesday a small group of volunteers from different walks of life, devote their time to maintaining this garden to grow organic vegetables and herbs to share with our community. Being a volunteer opens an opportunity to connect with other like-minded people to learn new skills, to work towards producing a sustainable garden into the future. This community garden  also works closely with ‘Gardens4health’ who run regular workshops around Auckland.
