Plunket is calling for more Maori volunteers at the front line to help lift flagging numbers.

Waatea News reports the organisation is holding its 59th national conference in Rotorua this week.

Staff and volunteers are taking part in professional development, networking and looking to the future.

Plunket's Maori cultural advisor Daniel Hauraki, says recruiting and retaining Maori volunteers is crucial to running community programmes and helping connect whanau to relevant services.
