The Support Group is a Great Barrier Island community-based organisation, in a community proudly taking care of our own.

Our aim: “Giving every island resident the opportunity to live healthy, fulfilling, independent lives, and to fully participate in the community.”

He aha te mea nui i te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. – What is important? It is people, it is people, it is people.
