Where it all began
Connecting Communities Wairarapa is a long-standing not-for-profit organisation. It was first established in 1995 (as Masterton Safe and Healthy Community Council), following recognition that while some Masterton communities thrived, others were falling behind.
The organisation’s main task was to co-odinate a network of support services and initiatives to help strengthen individuals, and their neighbourhoods, to enable them to live well – and to do so independently.
Today we have extended our work across the province; our sole purpose remains to enhance the well-being of those Wairarapa individuals and communities who need assistance.
