Powerdigm, the consulting arm of Inspiring Communities, worked with Western Bay of Plenty District Council (WBOPDC) and its strategic community sector partner SociaLink to shape this project.

Taking a case study approach has enabled us to shine a light on six different locally-led initiatives doing amazing things to enable wellbeing in their part of Aotearoa. Their insights were brought together with our own to provide new framing and advice for how councils (and others!) can more effectively support and partner with key local ‘anchor’ organisations in their communities.

We hope that the learning and provocations in our Think Piece stimulate further thinking about collaborative community-led approaches and further experimentation of different ways to support and work with local communities, both in the Western Bay, and throughout Aotearoa.
