Inspiring Communities is an organisation that catalyses locally-led change. Because this achieves sustainable, effective outcomes.

We are a team of specialists in community-led development. We use our experience and expertise to mentor, broker, train and connect communities to become even better places to live, work and invest in.

Inspiring Communities is a backbone organisation: we operate across many sectors at multiple levels. We are the reference point for community-led development in New Zealand, building on international and local practice-based evidence to grow and share expertise.
