How it works - programme overview

Street Guardians provides a twice-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 two days a week and allows for up to 12 people to participate each day. The programme is popular, with most weeks oversubscribed, leading to weekly waitlists at Auckland City Mission, who are responsible for delivering the programme. 

Participants are offered a Koha for their time.

The programme works with a number of community organisations to support the programme, including:

  • EcoMatters
  • Kaipatiki Project
  • Kelmarna Gardens
  • Ngāti Whātua o Ōrākei
  • The Tipping Point
  • Waiheke Resources Trust
