Looking at Council services through a Child Equity Lens Story

Child Poverty is an epidemic that affects approximately 29% of tamariki in Aotearoa; an uncomfortably high number which is even higher in Rotorua, where Jill Campbell – Advisor for the Strategy and Partnership Team of Rotorua Lakes District Council told us about the work they’re doing to address urgent issues.

The Community Kindness Movement. Story

Now more than ever, the notion of community kindness is relevant to how we support each other and our wider community. Sharing of surplus food is one key way neighbours can support each other. While there are now over 100 pātaka kai open street pantries operating across Aotearoa, they have been advised to close while we are on Alert Level 4 for COVID-19. When Aotearoa is officially released from lockdown, we look forward to seeing these and other neighbourhood-sharing initiatives continue to grow and expand in our communities. Kia Kaha.
