Weaving our Strengths forum report

We thought you’d be interested in our report from the Weaving our Strengths forum, which we curated, on 24th May 2018, working alongside co-hosts the J R McKenzie Trust and the Office of the Children’s Commissioner.

The J R McKenzie Trust and the Office of the Children’s Commissioner invited a range of stakeholders from the children’s sector, government, philanthropic sector, service providers, community groups and those with lived experiences to a one-day hui in Wellington, on reducing child poverty and improving child wellbeing. The day was managed and curated by Inspiring Communities. The day aimed to:

  • strengthen relationships and encourage people to work together to identify solutions and opportunities to overcome what causes and perpetuates child poverty
  • create an environment to better understand a range of experiences and perspectives of child poverty and child wellbeing, and
  • inform work on child poverty reduction and the development of the Child Wellbeing Strategy, and encourage participants to engage in the consultation.
