Third Sector Forum

Kia ora koutou
This is a heads-up for a 'must-attend' event coming soon.
Late last year a report on the post-quake recovery needs of the Third/Not-For-Profit sector was released. (http://ccoss.org.nz/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/Third-Sector-Recovery-Report-2016.pdf) Many of us in the sector contributed our time, perspectives and knowledge to the research in the hope that we could influence some changes to help strengthen our sector.
The report came up with over 30 Action Points, and now is the time to figure out how to make these actions happen. This forum is aimed at establishing what's already happening that supports the actions. We'll be hearing from some of the stakeholders identified in the report - funders and central/local government, and discussing with them what they're doing now that aligns with the actions. There will also be opportunities to identify what else is already happening in our own sector, and start to tease out 'what next'.
Keep an eye out for more information coming out soon, and in the meantime make sure you keep Tues 23 May, 12 noon - 3pm free.
