Welcome

Neighbourhood Support is a nationwide community led movement that brings people and neighbourhoods together to create safe, resilient and connected communities.
We work alongside NZ Police, Auckland Council, FENZ Fire & Emergency New Zealand & Auckland Emergency Management CD to create safe and caring neighbourhoods and communities, reducing the incidents and effects of crime, building community resilience and strengthening community networks to improve the quality of life and enhance well-being.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
It’s easy!
You can either join an existing group or form a new one or join as an individual
When you join a group you get to decide what works best for you.
You can share the information you want with who you want and your group can meet when and how it likes.
You could:

  •  Stay connected online or by email or phone / mobile
  •  Host street barbecues or events.
  •  Volunteer to be a street contact and connect your street.
  •  Get organised and undertake some neighbourhood projects.

 
3 WAYS TO CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS…
• Reach Out Wave, say ‘Kia Ora!’ or introduce yourself. Welcome new residents to your street when they move in.
• Look Out Help keep your community safe by looking out for your neighbours. If something doesn’t look right let them know or get help if needed.
• Help Out Share any surplus from your garden or fruit trees. Offer to take the rubbish out for someone who needs a hand. Take time to have a chat with someone who lives alone.
There are many ways you can make a difference in your community!
Neighbours that know each other are more likely to offer assistance, accept and ask for help when they need it.
Let’s build a stronger Aotearoa by staying more connected.
