Why Volunteer


Kids With Arthritis NZ Charitable Trust is a charity making a difference to the lives of those affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and other autoimmune conditions. We are a charity run entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers are parents of a child that has, or did have JIA, health professional, siblings and young adults with (JIA).  So, they all have a personal experience with JIA and bring a wealth of knowledge, life and professional skills to KWANZ.

They are the core of KWANZ. It is thanks to their dedication and passion to support children with arthritis and their families that we have grown from strength to strength, and are able to provide the much-needed support to these children with a chronic illness.

As a volunteer led charity, we are always looking for people to support us.

There are lots of ways you can volunteer with us, using your skills, personal or professional, will support children with arthritis and their families.
