There are many inspiring community initiatives throughout Aotearoa that are making an impact and which have caught our attention.

Part of our role is to shine a spotlight on what works and how to improve what doesn’t.  Here is a diverse range of community stories, covering different regions, ideas and different ways of achieving effective practice. You can search each story based on topic by using the search field located at the top right of the page.
