A collective of passionate humans doing good for their 'hood.
Est. 2020

Neighbourhood NZ is an innovative and diverse non-profit centered around fostering community connection and impact through providing events, education and empowerment for individuals and the collective. Our community events and campaigns aim to bring young New Zealander’s together to give them a space to connect whilst also forming a support system for when they are in need.


Ultimately, Neighbourhood exists to encourage those around us to nurture their wellbeing by giving them tangible, interactive and creative events, resources and tools. 

WHO WE ARE

A NBHD UPDATE FROM DIRECTOR MADELINE MASON

Kia ora friends, family and followers of Neighbourhood NZ! We appreciate you being on this journey with us. 

Every week it feels like we have had a mini growth spurt, or encounter some growing pains. Treading where no one has trodden means things can sometimes be overwhelming and difficult, but we also feel beyond grateful to do the mahi that we do.

As of July 2022, we officially became a registered charity (after 18 months as a non-profit) and we hope this allows us to keep refining and rolling out our impactful campaigns and growing community spaces. A team of 24 volunteers around Aotearoa chip in time each week to make Neighbourhood what it is - and we are pretty darn proud of how far we’ve come with only our pocket money and a whole lot of heart to power us forward so far.

Neighbourhood has now grown to a size and potential where we are investing more time and energy into logistics and strategy, because, thanks to all of you (!!!) more and more people are engaging with and getting behind our mahi - and we are evolving to be able to embrace that.

What started as a pipe-dream scribble in a diary is now a real, tangible operation and we are forever grateful for every single person who has believed in us along the way.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE GROUND

Our model is unconventional, there is not an organisation like us in NZ, we covering events and awareness around Mental Wellbeing, Sustainability, Sexual Violence and general staying well and being apart of a community. 

Creating environments to connect people with role models and environments, starting conversations and adding wellness into our lives.

This movement is bigger than ourselves, we host events and campaigns to spark the change, the passion and the ambition and hope (and already see) the ripples of our change filtering throughout our communities and people continuing this power.

NO SMALL TALK NATION WIDE SERIES

Breaking the stigma, and encouraging men to get talking. Having a conversation about how you are feeling, or listening to someone else who is sharing saves lives. No Small Talk is the safe space to get started.

Throughout March & April 2022 we held No Small Talk Dinners in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin.
