Know Your Stuff is a national organisation that works to address the lack of factual, proven information available to drug users about the substances they intend to take. There was a problem in the community where people were obtaining drugs that they thought were fairly safe but, in reality, had the potential to be something completely different that could harm or kill them. By offering drug testing stations at festivals and clinics, they have successfully proven that providing a confidential testing service can save lives.

Stitch Kitchen is a local Dunedin sewing business. Their mission is to inspire and build community through creative practices while reducing textile waste and its environmental impact. Providing a space where the community can repurpose their fashion material achieves its goal of diverting materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.

The Taste Nature franchise is ever-expanding, with the ideology of creating sustainable, global citizens. Their next project is to collaborate with Spark Tank to deliver a primary education program. Their aim is to provide alternative education for those who either do not “fit” the conventional education system, or they need space to be nourished alongside their daily school day. They wish to facilitate a place where their individual needs and interests can be the guide for children's learning.

Age Concern Otago promotes the wellbeing, rights, respect and dignity of older people in the Otago region. They offer numerous services to the Otago community, which range from fall prevention classes to visiting services and elder abuse support. They are a registered charity that depends on an annual subscription from members who, in return, will receive access to all of the services. One of their main priorities is growing the social connections amongst older adults in Dunedin, which they facilitate through their ample space in the octagon, which is a place where all elderly are welcome and encouraged to partake in activities.
