Wesley Community Action works in communities throughout Wellington to help people create better lives for themselves and their whānau.

Our work is based on the belief that people are the experts in their own lives. We support them to identify their strengths and skills and the changes they believe will allow them to have a better life.

We work with people and communities of all ages, backgrounds and stages of life.
