Locally led change and Tamaki

In 2008 a group of Tāmaki community contributors set out on a journey together to explore better ways of doing things across Tāmaki communities.

A number of initiatives were undertaken collectively, such as the Tāmaki Inclusive Engagement Strategy (T.I.E.S,) to help ensure that local people were part of proposed government-led transformation projects in their community. Many other initiatives were undertaken by local organisations such as Ka Mau te Wero to help grow and support locally-led outcomes and change.

As part of the Inspiring Communities ‘Core learning Cluster’ research project, a number of local learning and outcome stories were written to capture and communicate community-led experiences as seen through local eyes. While many projects and people have now changed, the approaches and learning demonstrated remain inspirational.
