Welcome to Community Connect

About Community Connect

Community groups, clubs and organisations are an important part of making the South Waikato a great place to live. Helping people within the community to connect with groups and organisations whether it be for the purpose of recreation, support or services is also really important to the South Waikato District Council.

Council’s Community Development team is focused on supporting “committed individuals and vibrant groups to create healthy and happy communities.”

This website is a tool to help the development of community organisations and their activities. It has been created to serve those groups and individuals that have a passion to make a difference in the district and also value the importance of community cooperation and cohesion.

If you have any suggestions for additional information on the site that may be of assistance or have any questions feel free to contact Council's Community Development team.
