New Plymouth District:
an Accredited International Safe Community

Ma pango ma whero, ka oti te mahi

By united efforts the task will be accomplished


New Plymouth Injury Safe Trust is a coalition of local organisations and groups working together to achieve a safe community, without the burden of injury. We have enabled New Plymouth District to be accredited as an International Safe Community since 2005 (endorsed approach by WHO).

This website has been set up as a community resource for those with an interest in promoting safety across the New Plymouth District and wider region of Taranaki. It brings together a wide range of safety related information into one place - a kind of ‘one stop shop’ for community safety in our district. As a result, local organisations and groups can use the site to find out more about safety issues or to share information about their own services and projects with others.

While the focus is largely on New Plymouth District, the website is available for use by groups and organisations across Taranaki. A number of the coalition groups and related community safety programmes profiled on this site operate at a regional level.

You will find a wealth of information within this site. Everything from injury statistics and information about community safety initiatives through to contact details for local safety networks and links to other relevant websites.

If you are involved in a local community safety group or programme that is not currently mentioned on this site we would love to hear from you!
