Starting a Neighbourhood Support group is as easy as talking to the people on your street. Forming a group is a great way to promote regular communication, support one another and bring people closer together.
See the Community Resources page for more helpful advice.
The small remote community of Mataikona was experiencing a growing problem with poachers and spotlight hunters. Residents worked with Masterton Neighbourhood Support, NZ Police, CD and Rural Fire to form a Neighbourhood Support Group. The group said that coming together as a neighbourhood was the best way in dealing with this and other issues the community faced. Masterton Neighbourhood Support
