Give your time for Brake

If you have been bereaved or injured in a road crash, or just care deeply about road safety, then you can help by volunteering for Brake!

Banner speedBecome a Brake Champion: We are looking for people across New Zealand to become Brake Champions and become the face of Brake within their community. Do you have time on your hands to help promote local road safety campaigns, to organise fundraising activities and attend events on our behalf? Would you like to work alongside other committed individuals to become local Brake representatives? Find out more.

Cheque presentationBrakeVoice: Brake is sometimes asked, by the media, for local spokespeople who can talk about the effects of death and injury on roads on families and communities. If you have personal experience of death or injury as a result of a road crash (but are sufficiently recovered to talk about your case) and wish to talk to the media about the importance of using roads safely, then give us a call (training is provided).

Event volunteer: Could you help us at an event such as a local fair holding a collection bucket or talking to people (perhaps at a local Rotary Club or Young Farmers group) about road safety? You must be prepared to talk to other people about key road safety issues such as the dangers of speeding, in line with Brake's campaigns, and not afraid to ask them for to donate to a great cause!

Office support: We are always in need of volunteers who can give a few hours a week or more to help us out with specific tasks such as marketing and fundraising, and more general office tasks such as posting resource orders and databasing. If you have a few hours you can spare during office hours each week, please get in touch.

Caroline RoundTheBaysFundraise for us: Brake is a small charity and we rely heavily on the support of our fundraisers to help us with our life-saving work. Could you help us by fundraising for us? It could be as simple as collecting loose change, or baking cakes and selling them at work; through to the more adventurous opportunities like skydiving or running a marathon. Every cent goes towards our work preventing road death and injury and supporting those bereaved or injured in road crashes, so we would be very grateful of your support. Find out more on our fundraising pages.

Graduate and under-graduate volunteer work experience placements: If you are a student or recent graduate looking for charity experience as part of your degree or in your holidays, then unpaid placement opportunities may be available at Brake to help with events, marketing, media and fundraising.
