To nurture and enable Community-led Development (CLD) across the motu, we provide a diverse range of CLD learning and connecting opportunities  – including workshops, clinics, coaching, and mentoring.

This year, we have all had to adjust to new ways of working, learning and doing.

Explore what’s available to help you support and strengthen your locally-led outcomes and deliverables. Let’s continue to evolve, learn, develop our capacity and stay connected post-Covid-19.
