About Us…

Community networks working together to support local communities
Previously known as FranCOSS (Council of Social Services Franklin Inc), Community Networks Franklin is a member of Community Networks Aotearoa, which is the umbrella organisation for local community networks.

Our vision for Franklin country

Our vision is for a Franklin Community working together to maintain a socially just community within a sustainable environment.

Our mission is to speak out for Franklin’s community service providers and lead a transition to a local economy that is focused on people, nature and prosperity for all.

We will achieve this by:
 – increasing our community’s awareness of community service providers in Franklin
 – offering networking and professional development opportunities for Community Networks Franklin members
 – providing a hub for agencies to disseminate information, workshops and activities
 – this transition may be enabled from a peer to peer (P2P) approach to social relations.
