How it works - programme overview

Launched in October 2018, Street Guardians provides a weekly opportunity for the street community to spend a day doing activities with community organisations –from fixing bikes and building planter boxes to planting trees and cleaning beaches.

Street Guardians takes place every Tuesday and allows for up to 12 people to participate. The programme is popular, with most weeks oversubscribed, leading to weekly waitlists at Auckland City Mission which is a key partner of the programme. 

Participants are offered a Koha for their time.

We are currently working with a number of community organisations to support the programme, including:

  • Kaipatiki Project
  • Kelmarna Gardens
  • The Tipping Point
  • Waiheke Resources Trust
