Neighbourhood Support Nelson aims to create safe and friendly neighbourhoods, by helping neighbours connect and support each other through Neighbourhood Support groups.
We have a network of 400 groups in the Nelson city area, from Hira in the north to Stoke in the south. The groups enable neighbours to communicate and support one another in practical ways, such as keeping an eye on each others’ homes when people are away.
Knowing your neighbours helps prevent crime in your neighbourhood and gives you peace of mind should an emergency arise. It also makes your neighbourhood a nicer place to live in.
It’s easy to join our network and it’s also free – find out more about joining a group or setting up a group. Or get involved in Neighbours Day Aotearoa, and enter the draw for a meat pack, bakery or equipment hire voucher for a neighbourhood event.
We also have a community BBQ trailer available for neighbourhood and community events.
