The Ranui Action Project (RAP) is an innovative community development project, which brokers connections between social services, government agencies and the community to improve the health and wellbeing in Ranui. We are founding members of the Ranui Accord, a collective of social service providers in Ranui that meet regularly.
We also operate the Ranui House, with services and meeting spaces located here for the benefit of our people. We are situated at 476 Swanson Road in the heart of Ranui.

RAP Board members 2016
Earlier this year we were pleased to welcome two new members to the RAP Board: Pranil Ranchhod, owner of the Ranui Fresh Choice Supermarket, and Nick Keene, Manager of the Ranui Library. Both bring their business and management skills to the Board, as well as their commitment to Ranui Community well-being.
Lynne Green continues in her role as Co-Chair. Lynne is also treasurer to the Board.
Edith Amituana’i, also Co-Chair, has special roles in youth communication and community safety projects.
The other three Board members are Vai Atatai, Neville Luisi, and Charmaine Pountney- more about us next month, and also about Community Engagement Manager Zee Luisi and Kaitakawaenga Hinemoa Key.
Sandra Hickey is often the first person you will see if you come in the front door of RAP House.
Sandra will welcome you, and is a fine source of information about people and services based here.
