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.

Improving Housing Quality

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.

Funding for our young people

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.

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.
