About Us

Neighbourhood Support Manawatū is a charitable trust and incorporated society, and we are a member organisation of Neighbourhood Support New Zealand.

Neighbourhood Support is a nationwide community-led movement that brings people and neighbourhoods together to create safe, resilient and connected communities.  In the Manawatū we work closely with Feilding Police, Manawatū District Council and other community & social organisations.

We receive our core funding from Manawatū District Council, Neighbourhood Support New Zealand, COGS, the Lottery Grants Board, and Eastern & Central Communities Trust. We also welcome donations from local businesses.

The Neighbourhood Support network consists of more than 65 membership organisations, spanning all 12 Police Districts and currently supporting over 200,000 households across the country.

Our financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June. Read our Annual Performance Report for the 2020-21 financial year.
