We were pleased to announce in 2019 the appointment of Helen Keivom as the AgeConnect Kapiti Ambassador for Paekakariki. We are now looking to appoint AgeConnect Kapiti Ambassadors in Otaki, Waikanae, Paraparaumu Central, Paraparaumu Beach and Raumati to help us:

  • raise awareness about AgeConnect Kapiti
  • find out about activities and events in their community

Ambassadors are volunteers who give a few hours of their time to be our eyes and ears in their local community. They meet regularly with the AgeConnect Co-ordinator and Advisory Group and provide information to help keep this website and other AgeConnect resources up to date.

Please tell us if you would like more information about this role.

Helen Keivom and Dermot Whelan, General Manager, Age Concern Kapiti. 

On her appointment Helen Keivom said “I am delighted to be appointed an Ambassador for this fantastic Age Concern Kapiti project. It is often said that it takes a village to raise a child and I would add that it also takes a village to provide our elders with the very best care and attention and I believe this project will go a long way towards that”
