About.

Volunteer Kāpiti and Kāpiti Impact Trust are working together on a Community and Social Sector Project, building a collaboration under the Social Investment funding from Kāpiti Coast District Council. ​

The challenges and opportunities that Our Kāpiti Community faces are too large to be overcome by individual organisations, we need everyone moving forwards together to realise our potential and achieve our dreams.

Our Goal

To serve Our Kāpiti Community better by increasing the capability of the community and social sector.
