Kōtuia ngā pūmanawa, hāpaitia te mana hapori.
Sharing strengths, empowering community.

Te Pū Harakeke—Community Collective Manawatū exists to support, empower, and advocate for community groups and kaimahi hapori in Palmerston North and the Manawatū, and together build a strong, vibrant, and connected community sector across the rohe.

Fostering connections

We help build connections across Palmy and the Manawatū's community sector through our regular members' meetings, networking events and our monthly email newsletter, Flax.

Advocacting for the community sector

We keep on top of the things that matter to our community sector and share this with those who need to know and can effect change.

Training & development

We offer a wide range of affordable training opportunities throughout the year to help build the capability and capacity of boards, staff and volunteers.

Building capability and capacity

We can offer confidential advice and help community groups solve problems. We can also provide financial support to access professional and legal services in some situations.
