About Wesley Community Action

Established in 1952 by the Methodist Church, Wesley Community Action has been pioneering innovative approaches to social justice and  quietly helping create just and caring communities ever since.

Wesley Community Action is;

  • Passionate – about social change – we don’t separate helping  individuals from working towards wider social, political and economic transformation.
  • Biased – we believe in all peoples capacity to contribute to their wellbeing,  tend to work with people with the least voice or power. We believe the Treaty of Waitangi is important to positively shape the lives of all New Zealanders now and in the future.
  • Practical – we get stuck in where we see a need, are grounded – we know our areas of expertise and limitations, we laugh a lot, we enjoy what we do, value partnerships and are optimistic.
