South Dunedin Community Network


Committee & Board





The South Dunedin Community Network connects people who live, work or play across the wider South Dunedin area to strengthen communities and help people use their voice to create a vibrant, resilient community and a safe future together.
After the serious flooding in 2015, that the Community Network was created. Since then, long term water issues have been a key aspect in our work, as well as building up our community and creating day to day opportunities for the community to come together and celebrate. We host two community Hui every year, as well as being part of the organisation of the South Dunedin Street Festival, the Teddy Bears’ Hospital each year. We also are part of a number of networks within our community and run smaller events, such as sausage sizzles, throughout the community.

In our first few years we were fortunate to be umbrellaed and supported by Otago Catholic Social Services. We have just begun our next stage of development by becoming an incorporated society and registered charity. This is a big step that we are very proud to be making.
The Network is here for everyone in South Dunedin and we are looking for expressions of interest for anyone who would like to be a part of our Rōpū which provides the governance for the network.
