Community support

Porirua City supports the community groups who support you. Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi - with your basket and my basket the people will live.

Young People's Fund

We support young people in our city through grants and funding programmes. But it’s not just about money – we want to support our rangatahi and tamariki as they take on challenges and learn new skills.

Event funding & sponsorship

We are keen supporters of arts, recreation, cultural heritage, events, festivals and sporting activities that benefit Porirua City's community.

Community housing

Everyone deserves to come home to a dry, warm, and safe whare. Our social housing units provide people aged 65 or older with secure, low-cost accommodation that is close to shops and public transport.

Community directories

We're a social bunch here in Porirua City and have a vibrant volunteer community and lots of support groups.

Creative Communities Scheme

This scheme is a partnership between Porirua City Council and Creative New Zealand that supports and encourages local arts activities.

Porirua Emergency Services Fund

We provide non-contestable funding for emergency services.
