A Note from the Editors Welcome to our new look Neighbourhood Support Waitakere magazine! We’ve had a variable twelve months alongside our community with a major focus on wellbeing and connectedness as we’ve worked together in support of each other over the days, weeks and months which have continued to oscillate in varying degrees. Our membership has strengthened in capability and have looked to us for both guidance and collaboration whilst also reaching out to those around them to ensure neighbours were supported throughout. This March, we have launched our latest resource ‘Manaaki Street’, a children’s book written for our pre-school and junior primary school aged children, taking them on a neighbourhood journey of community interaction and support. With support from our National Body NSNZ this book is being rolled out across the nation along with joining information for our local support network. This resource has created a hugely positive response and it provides us a charming and endearing engagement with our younger community members and their families. Our Committee remain steadfast in their support of the organisation and we commend them for their ongoing enthusiasm and passion. We look forward to another productive year and thank our funders and supporters, without whom we wouldn’t be here. We thank our members and partners for their ongoing support and look forward to catching up with you all whilst out and about!
