Current Projects



alzheimers Otago

Alzheimers Otago was established in 1982 with the vision of creating a ‘dementia friendly’ Otago. Their core service is supporting those caring for people with Dementia by working directly with families to ensure people with Dementia and their carers can access the right support at the right time. Alzheimers Otago currently supports more than 500 families in the region to help them navigate the day-to-day challenges of living with Dementia. 


WEKA was launched two years ago to provide educational seminars and support sessions regarding mental health and related issues. This included relapse planning, substance abuse, carer fatigue, and routes towards wellbeing in individual, whānau and community contexts. To date, community-based sessions have been delivered to over 2,000 people. WEKA’s vision is to enable individuals, whānau and communities to enjoy increased mental wellbeing in a way that is accessible, interesting and supportive, and in line with their core values. 

The Ignite Project


SuperGrans Dunedin was established in 2003 as a Charitable Trust. It is part of a network of SuperGran Agencies throughout New Zealand that provide a caring and non-judgemental service by sharing home skills, such as cooking, gardening and sewing. 

Ignite is a not-for-profit, student-run organisation that recruits 25 consultants each semester to volunteer for Dunedin charities. At Ignite, we build partnerships between talented students and socially conscious organisations to help maximise their impact. Ignite has been operating for 10 years, and has branches in both Dunedin and Wellington. This semester, Ignite will be its own project and will receive recommendations from consultants on how to improve community impact.



Applications are closed for semester one. For more updates on semester two recruitment and everything Ignite, head to our Facebook page!
