As Inspiring Communities has evolved so has much of the learning in New Zealand about effective Community-led Development. A key role of Inspiring Communities is to share knowledge about what works and why – to help more communities do it. We also support key CLD stakeholders to know how to recognise, support and celebrate effective practice and approaches. To this end we worked alongside a number of communities who have recorded their approach along the way. These case studies are a collection of what they have learnt.
