Becoming a Local Assistant

People First New Zealand is always on the lookout for new people to support groups and members.

There are over 30 local People First groups across New Zealand where members meet monthly.

Meetings take place in community venues and members learn about:

  • human rights
  • how to speak up when having problems
  • what is going on in local communities

and meet new people.

Groups work well with 2-3 people assisting a group.

If you want to know more about supporting a local group with their meetings please contact the local Coordinator in your region.

If you don’t think you can help out with a group, but would like to help in other ways please contact People First National Office on:
