Our Mission: Increasing the capacity of communities to thrive through community-led change.

To support and strengthen the emerging community-led development movement in Aotearoa we focus on:

  • Promoting: the understanding and practice of CLD and influencing systems change/public policies at all levels.
  • Connecting: people, projects and places to share and showcase CLD ideas, knowledge, learning and experience.
  • Learning: more about CLD, about how positive change is created, noticed and effectively captured, and continually sharing this to build capacity and strengthen wellbeing outcomes in local communities.
  • Building: a sustainable and vital organisation, with a mixed source funding and earning base.
