About Us

Better Communities began as a response to the challenges facing social and affordable housing in Auckland in 2013. Since those initial discussions, the team from Better Communities have met with many more interested people who all share the same vision – creating better communities across New Zealand.

While we have supportive partners and collaborators, Better Communities is at this point represented by a volunteer coordinator, Shaun Lines, who has the support of a volunteer director Nathalie van Dort.

Better Communities also has a very strong strategic alliance with George Housakos, Director People 4 Places (Australia) who has considerable experience in place management, creating nurturing communities and social housing.
