The wellbeing of the city’s children and young people is important to us. Porirua City has funds that organisations, and children and young people can apply to.
We are keen supporters of arts, recreation, cultural heritage, events, festivals and sporting activities that benefit Porirua City's community.
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.
We're a social bunch here in Porirua City and have a vibrant volunteer community and lots of support groups.
The Shared Responsibility Scheme funds projects that provide, develop or renovate cultural, social, recreational and sports facilities on Council-owned land within Porirua.
This scheme is a partnership between Porirua City Council and Creative New Zealand that supports and encourages local arts activities.
