Overview

The CommunityFinder directory is a catalogue of community groups and services in the Wellington region. This website is managed and maintained by the Wellington City Council.

Anyone is free to list, manage and update information about not-for-profit community organisations in the Wellington region on CommunityFinder.

To list your group or service on CommunityFinder, you will need to create an account as a Group Owner.

It’s your information – you’re in control

As a Group Owner, you can choose what information you provide about your group. You have full control over updates and changes to your listing, as well as over removing your listing at any time. 

Your responsibility

As a Group Owner, you are responsible for updating and maintaining the information on your listing to make sure it is correct. 

You must keep us informed of any change of physical / postal addresses, email addresses, contact numbers and any other information relevant to your listing on CommunityFinder.

We will try to contact Group owners through the email address listed in the directory; however, no responsibility can be accepted if the contact details for you are incorrect.

Our editorial discretion

The CommunityFinder administrator reserves the right to exercise broad editorial discretion in determining the content is suitable for the online directory, and we have the right to change, suspend or delete your details at any time.

Group Owners will be notified by an automatically-generated email if your listing is changed by the CommunityFinder administrator while using editorial discretion.

Privacy

Storage of information

All information you add to CommunityFinder through your account is held securely in our database. Only your Group listing information will be publicly published on the CommunityFinder directory. Your personal details (unless these are part of your Group’s details) will not be shared with third parties except if Wellington City Council is required to by law.

Public access of CommunityFinder content   

Group Owners should be aware that any information listed on CommunityFinder is publicly accessible on the Internet and can be accessed worldwide. You should craft your listing with this in mind.
