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.
South Dunedin is a diverse community in a unique position. Built on a foundation of reclaimed swamp lands, we are facing some serious implications due to rising sea levels. Surface flooding is already a real issue in our community and it is from the need for the community to come together after some 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 intend to move quickly onto being a registered charity. This is a big step that we are very proud to be making.
We are looking for someone who would like to volunteer as a Treasurer and Rōpū member.
1 x 1 hour meeting / month (monday lunchtime)
no more than 5 more hours once initial systems/budgets are finalised and set up between treasurer and employed team.
The first step is to express your interest by filling out the form below. We will then put you in touch directly with the organisation for more information on the role and how to proceed.
