Kia Ora – Welcome!

The Nelson Newcomers Network is administered by the team at Volunteer Nelson. We are: Gordon (with Ernie), Holly, Jane and Ellie and between us we understand well the needs of newcomers and the challenges that they face.

We come from diverse backgrounds – both within New Zealand and overseas, and if you have any questions on settling in Nelson please get in touch with us, we’d love to hear from you.

Check out our Facebook page for the date of our next Coffee & Connections as well as details of other activities and events that might be of interest.
