NSNZ Celebrates 20th Birthday During AGM

Join us on Monday 21 October for our Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Police National Headquarters in Wellington where we be celebrating our 20th Birthday as Neighbourhood Support New Zealand!

The day after the AGM (Tuesday 22 October) we will be holding a hui to begin work on developing our Youth Engagement Strategy. The day will focus on how we can best engage children and young people in Neighbourhood Support.

We’ll be considering what our members have told us about how Junior Neighbourhood Support works in their areas, and looking at what ideas might work best for different age groups. Click here to learn more.

At this stage all ideas are welcome and on the table. So, if you have an interest in this topic and want to be part of the day, you are most welcome to attend.

Please RSVP to our AGM and / or hui by emailing our Community Advisor, Kelsey Scarr

NSNZ Officially Unveils New Logo

During the 2019 Neighbourhood Support New Zealand (NSNZ) Conference at the James Cook Chancellor Hotel in Wellington on July 1st and 2nd, we were pleased to officially unveil our new logo, as voted on by our members.

The multiple colours of the logo were adopted to represent inclusive communities where everyone is welcome and belongs. The colours are bright to reflect the positivity and energy that is created when people work together. The blue colour represents our ongoing partnership with NZ Police.  

The logo was specifically designed to maintain our previous group of people while depicting greater diversity. The diversity is symbolic, rather than representative, and is intended to reflect that our neighbourhoods are made up of people from a wide range of cultures, genders, ages and experiences. The officer figure represents the fact that we work alongside and support emergency services. The koru pattern around the edge of our logo reflects the important place of taha Maori in Aotearoa New Zealand and our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
