Support seniors who are attending the Tōtara day program, assisting with activities, and serving lunch and refreshments. The Tōtara day program runs from 10am to 3pm every weekday, with up to 16 people attending.
Enliven’s Tōtara Club provides a day activity programmes for older people who find themselves becoming socially isolated. Tōtara Club provides opportunities for people to maintain interests and skills, meet others, and share activities and experiences in the community.
Volunteers are also needed to assist with transporting clients in the Tōtara van (the van run is 9:30am - 10:30 and/or 3 - 4pm)
While we ideally would like volunteers to commit to a regular day and time, there are no set hours involved in volunteering for Enliven. We appreciate any time you are able to give to our clients whether it's an hour per month or several hours a day/week. We will invite you to come for a chat and at this time we can discuss what would best suit you.
