The Family Works Community Development team facilitates local initiatives in Dunedin, supporting people to come together to make positive change within their community.

Suburbs can be transformed into neighbourhoods when people pull together.  Local events, clean up days, performances and public meetings can create safer, friendlier environments.

The team also supports communities through the provision of funding, advice, and guidance when applying to external agencies for financial support.

Community development projects support safe, strong, connected Otago communities.
