A network of friendship & support for seniors

Virtual Village East is a local network of mutual support and friendship that helps older people in the East Auckland community connect with each other, live independently and enjoy life.

Virtually as good as a retirement village

As you get older, it’s vital to stay connected to your community and sometimes, to have a little support from others as well. Based on our five pillars of ageing well,Virtual Village East provides many of the benefits of a retirement village – activities, friendship and access to support services – so that you can keep living in your own home, your way.
