The Neighbourhood Support movement gains strength with every individual, family, street and organisation who joins. Together, we work to make our neighbourhoods and communities safer places in which to live.
We are eager to meet new partners to discuss a range of initiatives and activities.
We encourage you to support the organisations and businesses who support our work.
New Zealand Police has a very close working relationship with Neighbourhood Support New Zealand and provides prevention advice to all Neighbourhood Support Groups. The purpose of New Zealand Police is to ensure that everyone in our communities is safe and feels safe, ultimately making New Zealand the safest country in the world. We aim to have the trust and confidence of all, with the goals of reducing crime and victimisation, death and injuries on our roads and social harm in our communities. Our motto is “Safer communities together”. View the NZ Police website

The Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM) provides leadership, knowledge and support in preparing, responding and recovering from emergency events, promoting the importance of creating connected communities. In an emergency your neighbours and wider community may need your help, or be able to help you. We work with Neighbourhood Support to encourage Kiwis to build stronger communities so we are better able to get through.
Safelet is a smart and stylish safety bracelet that, with a simple press of a button, alerts your friends and family to your location and that you need help. Visit the Safelet website
In the spirit of keeping Kiwi families safe, we have partnered with Safelet to support Women's Refuge. The Adopt a Safelet programme aims to donate Safelet's to vulnerable women around New Zealand to ensure they are connected, protected and safe.
Individually or as a group, you can raise money to adopt a Safelet, doing your part to help. We are grateful for support from individuals, families, businesses and community organisations nation-wide.
