Clinic Volunteers underpin our ability to support up to 25,000 people per year and we are hugely thankful for the generosity and goodwill of all volunteers who have supported the day to day running of the organisation. Anxiety NZ has a limited number of placements each year for volunteers to support administration and community education.


Tasks vary and include a range of activities that support the smooth operation of a busy mental health organisation. There are places for volunteers in administration, community education or fundraising.  Based on the amount of training and support we provide we hope to provide the opportunity to volunteers who are able to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per week for a minimum of 12 months. The Trust hopes to provide a valuable experience and a safe place to learn new skills and knowledge while giving back to a community organisation that  greatly appreciates the support. For further details email Sarah at:  

The 24/7 Helpline volunteers

Our 24/7 Anxiety Helpline is often the front line of our services, providing a vital point of contact for those experiencing anxiety, and for their family and friends. Our volunteers receive full training but suitable applicants would meet a certain level of mental health study or work experience (e.g. suits university psychology students who are at least in their 2nd year of study or anyone with a Level 4 Mental Health qualification). Volunteers also need to be responsible, reliable, and have excellent people skills as the role involves communicating with highly distressed and at risk individuals. A commitment of at least 1 year of helpline shifts and monthly meeting attendance is required. 

For further details email Goldie our Helpline manager at: 

Specialist volunteers

Anxiety NZ is incredibly grateful for the longstanding support of specialist IT volunteers and accounting volunteers. If you have specific skills or knowledge, experience with fundraising, marketing, community education, projects or business we warmly welcome you to get in touch.

Please note, that as a charity that works with vulnerable people, we are required to conduct a police check for all volunteers. All volunteers will also be asked to review and sign a code of conduct agreement, IT use policy, confidentiality agreement and reference checks may be made.

We are deeply thankful for the support of Lindsay Foundation to help us purchase urgent and essential technology to enable clinical, peer support and community education services to continue over the four-week COVID-19 lockdown period. Their support, when we greatly needed it, directly assisted 6,250 people to connect with much needed support. Their donation also enabled us to develop the capacity of all services to work remotely, as needed, which are now ready to meet the future needs in the community of a further and predicted 68,750 people over the coming year.
Lindsay Foundation has partnered with Anxiety New Zealand Trust in a Youth Education Project to engage with Young Kiwi's in developing and delivering engaging content and support for youth (ages 13-23) aimed at increasing social and emotional resilience in online spaces, educating and reducing harmful behaviours around social media such as bullying and harassment and helping young people make the most of online opportunities.
