Neighbourhood Support is a nationwide community-led movement that brings people and neighbourhoods together to create safe, resilient, and connected communities. We believe that a well-connected community helps to improve safety, resilience, and wellbeing for all.
Neighbourhood Support New Zealand is a registered charity, and since 1999 we have been working alongside New Zealand Police and other partners to equip neighbourhoods to improve safety and connectedness, get prepared for emergencies, and support one another so that our communities are great places to live.
Neighbourhood Support New Zealand is made up of a network of community organisations (member organisations) that currently support over 200,000 households (and counting) across the country.
Being involved in Neighbourhood Support comes in many forms, and it is up to each individual and their member organisation what this looks like. Some members connect at street meetups and barbeques, some stay connected online and by email, others by being part of a neighbourhood phone tree.
By staying connected supporting each other and we can make our neighbourhoods safe and welcoming for all.

We believe in a New Zealand where all people can feel safe in their own communities, know their neighbours, and be prepared for whatever Papatūānuku or life throws our way.
