Neighbourhood Support Manawatū works with Police, Manawatū District Council and other community & social organisations to build safe, resilient and connected communities in Manawatū.

We promote connectedness and community safety, educate about crime prevention, and support community leaders to establish and maintain contact lists for their streets and areas.

Our work

Our core work revolves around engaging the community, sharing information and connecting people to other community services. We also run some programmes aimed at improving social, cognitive and physical wellbeing in our community, and we support Manawatū District Council’s efforts to prepare our communities for civil defence emergencies.
