We are taking an interest in the quality of housing because of the health impacts of poor housing on vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly.
We support young people in our city through our grants programme. But it’s not just about money – we want to support our rangatahi and tamariki as they take on challenges and learn new skills.
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.
We provide non-contestable funding for emergency services.
