People helping people

On 28 October 2015, Presbyterian Support Otago held our Annual General Meeting and presented the 2014/15 Annual Report.

The report details the difference our staff, volunteers and supporters have made to the lives of people in need in Otago. Chairman, David Richardson, introduced the report by acknowledging the key role volunteers and donors have played in Presbyterian Support Otago’s 109 year history. He noted the estimated 32,600 volunteer hours given by people across Otago in the past year and the impact this effort has

on our capacity to assist people in need.
He also noted Presbyterian Support’s ongoing commitment

to supporting older people in our community and addressing the urgent need for quality, affordable housing.

In her report to the meeting, Chief Executive, Gillian Bremner also referred to Otago’s desperate need for healthy, warm, affordable housing and Presbyterian Support’s ongoing advocacy for change in this area. The organisation is committed to giving voice to community issues in Otago and working with government, businesses and other community organisations to bring about positive change.
