DCM’s 24th annual, fundraising Bookfair will be held on Saturday 17 August 2019 at Shed 6, Queen’s Wharf, from 8am-6pm.

DCM works with people in the city of Wellington who are experiencing homelessness, supporting them to find and sustain housing, and to journey to wellbeing. We have adopted the byline “together we can end homelessness” which reflects the many people in our city who are part of our work – from the dentists who volunteer time at the DCM Dental Service to the many Wellingtonians who love and support our iconic annual DCM Bookfair.

This year DCM is celebrating its 50th birthday, and we are holding our 24th DCM Bookfair. With some 70,000 books, as well as vinyl, CDs and DVDs, it is an event that all Wellington book lovers look forward to. Mark the date in your diary – Saturday 17 August – come along with a group of friends and take the opportunity to enjoy brunch and a catch-up together while you are in the city. The local cafés are often full of our supporters browsing through their purchases or fuelling up before they head to the Bookfair. It’s a great day out and, even better, an opportunity to be part of the solution to homelessness in our city.

And as people who love to read, you will enjoy reading the uplifting stories we share on our website – about the success that your support makes possible – visit www.dcm.org.nz...

Because together we CAN end homelessness in our city.

Details about where you can donate books can be found here: www.dcm.org.nz...

Becoming a Neighbourly Premium Business allows you to connect with people that live near your business, the people you’re most likely to meet in real life.

If you'd like to be the business that locals turn to first, why don't you consider Neighbourly Premium?

"After signing up with Neighbourly in August 2017, we quickly noticed the number of users that were engaging with us through our messages. As Auckland’s number one moving and delivery company, we wanted Neighbourly members to understand what makes our customers love us.

"We’ve been able to do just that through our messages and posts. The benefits of Neighbourly in Auckland were so great that as soon as we opened our second branch in Tauranga it was one of our priorities to set up! It really works and the more effort you put in, the better the results you get." -- Devan Devaroyan, Director of Smart Express

The Neighbourly team recognises the value of the site for assessing community need and for this reason, we have a number of features perfect for election purposes.

Any campaigning should take place away from the general noticeboard. We've got a few options to help ensure your message is getting out to Neighbourly members. We'd suggest starting your own group on Neighbourly - this is a great way to connect with those who want to get updates about your candidacy.

We also have business profiles available for all candidates if you would like your messages to appear on the Neighbourly noticeboard. As well as this, we have special Neighbourly Advertising rates for election candidates. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Already an elected official? Neighbourly also offers all elected officials the option of creating an organisation profile to connect with those in their electorate - although these profiles should not be used for campaigning.

If you have any questions or need any assistance then let us know!
