Otago Neighbourhood Support
Otago Neighbourhood Support (ONS) is a nationwide community-led movement that brings people and neighbourhoods together to create safe, resilient and connected communities. Connecting over 200 thousand households across the country, ONS operates at a grass root level, connecting neighbourhoods and those within them. ONS also organises community events, runs seminars, and is part of many city-wide groups aiming to make Dunedin a better, safer place.
Coalition of Trusts
Since COVID-19, there has been an increasing number of the Dunedin population being affected through unemployment, mental wellbeing, and social isolation and disconnection from society. There is a need to form a coordinated response that enables increased and faster access to support. The Coalition of Trusts will be a collaboration between various not-for-profits and governmental organisations to address this issue, focusing on promoting volunteering, improving referral systems, ensuring hard to reach populations are being addressed etc.
