Resilient Communities
Auckland North

Resilient Communities Auckland North is an initiative run by Auckland North Community and Development (ANCAD) with support from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board and in consultation with Auckland Emergency Management.

Auckland North Community and Development (ANCAD) has been working in the Auckland North region since 1974, supporting community organisations to strengthen capacity, effectiveness and collaboration. ANCAD’s vision is to see resilient, safe, connected communities.


The Community Resilience programme is guided by a network of community organisations, groups and volunteers who are passionate about safe and connected communities.

Our vision is prepared, connected, resilient communities across Auckland North.

 This initiative is a community-led, emergency preparedness programme with objectives that include building strong community networks, providing community education and developing community-led emergency plans.


The Resilient Communities Auckland North programme is local to the Devonport-Takapuna area. However, we recognise that emergencies don’t stop at local board boundaries and so ANCAD also supports the wider North Shore area in emergency preparedness and response.


Thanks to Community Networks Aotearoa, COGS North Shore, the Lottery Grants Board and the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board for supporting this work.
