Help us to help our local community

Main image

We are more than just a paying it forward page. We are a village, helping one another to grow, and supporting each other through our three facebook groups and Village Hub Page.

Developed in December 2016 we are aspiring to create a "Village Hub" to help support our local community, also working with other organisations across the Canterbury Region.

Our extremely successful Facebook groups have almost 20,000 members paying forward advice, food, items. No money involved.

We are a supportive, non judgemental community group in the process of becoming a not for profit organisation. There's one catch, we really need your assistance to raise money in order to achieve this massive vision :)

Our Motto

"No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone"

Our mission is 'To provide a village of support within a safe, respectful and understanding environment, that fits in with our busy lives and modern living. To foster a sense of belonging and well being in our community'

It Takes a Village Canterbury's involvement (page creator)

Our team of 38 is working together to help bring something amazing to the Canterbury Community.

About us

About Us

We are more than just a pay it forward group, we are a village, helping one another to grow, and supporting each other through our three Facebook groups.

Our extremely successful groups have over 17,500 members, who interact and support each other with over 2,500 members posting each month and we are still growing!

We provide a safe, non-judgement platform, that is overseen by a group of approx. 40 volunteers – each post is reviewed before being approved to ensure the items being gifted are of a high quality.

Our registered charity provides baby and toddler bundles to families in need, we do not means test anyone who approaches us for help, but we do encourage them to seek help for themselves first within our group.

To provide these bundles we rely on donations from our community, but the demand is heavily outweighing the donations – we need your help to provide the consumable items in these bundles – and it doesn’t have to be much!

Our motto – ‘no one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone.’

Use of funds

Funds will be used to help become a non-profit organization eg Community mentor, Marketing :)
