WE NEED YOUR HELP

We are currently seeking Group Support Facilitators in Taranaki and Nelson.  Ideally this involves two people in each region, supporting people in the community who are grappling with infertility.   
  
Group Support Facilitators are volunteers who hold coffee/support groups every four weeks in their area. They've come out the other side of their own fertility journey and realise the value of a supportive face-to-face environment. While this is a volunteer role, all costs of running the group are covered by Fertility NZ and we provide formal training, marketing, administrative and social media support as well as an ear when ever you need it.  

If you live in Taranaki or Nelson and have been waiting for an opportunity to give back in a meaningful way, or know of someone who may be interested, please contact: support@fertilitynz.org.nz for a position description.
