About us

Pukekohe Community Action is a Not for Profit and Independent Registered Charitable Trust  established in 2012, in response to the growing social needs in Franklin.

We are committed to developing sustainable programmes that positively support and change the lives of people in the Franklin community.  Our groups bring people who are experiencing changes or challenges and facing similar issues in their lives together, to foster lasting connections and friendships in an atmosphere that is supportive, educational and nurturing. Our board members are committed to the continual development and expansion of our programmes to meet the current needs of our growing Community.

Our Board brings a broad range of experience in both local community networks and business fields which ensures tight governance and accountability in all that we do.
