Through our neutral and inclusive Partner Network of Donors, Funders, Agencies, Recipients, and Volunteers, Re-Source connects quality donated items to where they are most needed in our community. Everyone plays an important part in what we do and how we do it.


The culture of rehoming, reusing, and repurposing in Aotearoa New Zealand while fostering a sense of community and mutual support is at the heart of what we do, and everyone in our network plays an important part in providing hope for a sustainable and inclusive future.

“I have reached out to Re-Source in many circumstances using the items they provide to benefit whānau who have or are experiencing homelessness, emergency and transitional housing. Without questions or judgement, Re-Source provide items that are needed for their forever homes. Some whānau have exhausted their eligibility within the govt system so most times this is an only option.The items that Re-Source provide is targeted to the clients needs and extra special care with detailed items for whānau that caters for their age and gender so to make the home feel like their home.I am amazed at how practical and empathetic Nadine has been… I am also gratified by the cleanliness and quality of the goods which she resources to hand on or are delivered to our whanau in need.”
