NWO is an educational incorporated society with registered charitable status. Our Charities Commission number is “CC1471115”.
We are part of a wider national network of groups and individuals.
Apart from relevant legislative and some funding requirements, NWO is independent of government, business interests and political parties. We accept koha in recognition of our work on the basis of what individuals and groups can afford, while taking into account the need to ensure that any amounts paid to us will not disadvantage Mana Whenua planning and will not put people off engaging in the workshops and other activities.
