IHC’s volunteer programme has expanded to online to provide friendship and connection to people with intellectual disabilities, and to family carers, no matter where they live in New Zealand.
The IHC i-Volunteer programme links people with intellectual disabilities and family carers with a friend who they can connect with online or by phone. The relationship is one-to-one. This means you spend time speaking to only one person, so you can both get to know each other. You can both decide how often you are in contact, there is flexibility and it is not time specific.
