Wellington

dress for success

The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

 

Wellington Down Syndrome Association

WDSA supports, educates and advocates for people within the Down Syndrome community in the greater Wellington region. They seek to empower individuals with Down syndrome for a lifetime of meaningful inclusion in the community.

 

Living wage

The Living Wage emerged as a response to growing poverty and inequality that continues to hold back so many Kiwi workers, their families and our economy. The Living Wage concept is very simple, yet such a powerful alternative – it’s the hourly wage a worker needs to pay for the necessities of life and participate as an active citizen in the community.  

Bellyful

Bellyful nourishes and connects communities throughout New Zealand by cooking and delivering meals to whānau, with babies or young children, who need support.

rebicycle

ReBicycle is a charitable community organisation which ‘upcycles’ donated second-hand bikes into safe, practical commuter bikes to gift or loan to people who need them, starting with newly settled refugees in the Wellington region but also including any people experiencing financial difficulty. It’s a community-led initiative that gives back to the community, preventing useful resources ending up in the landfill, reducing transport carbon emissions and enabling free healthy transport options.
