We work alongside communities to support them to be empowered, inclusive and to lead positive change.
Social and economic deprivation, loneliness and social isolation are fast emerging as major issues facing modern society, particularly because of their adverse effects on health and wellbeing. A great paradox of our hyper-connected digital age is that we seem to be drifting apart.
Specific groups are marginalised and excluded from the wider community because of their culture, gender identity, social or economic status, and intergenerational deprivation. Some regions within Aotearoa New Zealand experience higher levels of economic and social deprivation. Addressing those issues would be good for those regions and for the country as a whole.
We believe that community-led solutions are often the most effective ways to address complex social issues. Connected, generous communities and neighbourhoods are good for all of us.
