Greater Wellington Neighbourhood Support Trust

+64 21 349 660

Kilbirnie Police Station


The Greater Wellington Neighbourhood Support Trust was set up to deliver Neighbourhood Support all over the region. Through contracts with Kapiti Coast District Council, Hutt City Council and through various other wonderful funders we have coordinators in Kapiti, South Wairarapa, Lower Hutt, Wellington and Porirua. We also have a dedicated Youth coordinator on the Kapiti Coast.

Our aim is to bring Neighbourhood Support to anyone who wants it, building safety, connections and resilience in all of our communities. Delivering projects that are lead by the communities that best meet their needs and encourage engagement.

We work with individuals, groups, businesses and organisations to address concerns around safety, community well being and emergency preparedness. If you would like to chat to your local coordinator about setting up a Neighbourhood Support group in your area, or anything else going on in your community, please get in touch.

Creating safe, resilient, and connected communities.
