>Tāmaki Skills Series

We’ve heard that short, sharp injections of CLD skills and tools are really helpful for your community-led practice. IC will host several practical online CLD skills sessions over the coming months. Click through for details and to register – it’s free!

>Tāmaki Makaurau Hui

We know it’s some time since we got together in person to learn together and celebrate community-led action in Tāmaki Makaurau! We’re hoping to collaborate with others to convene a couple of regional CLD network hui – nothing beats being kanohi ki te kanohi, or meeting face to face. One hui will be around Kai Sovereignty which we know is an important kaupapa that lots of you are involved with in some capacity.

The second hui is in early planning stage for November, with a focus on bringing together those working in community-led ways to enhance the mana and wellbeing of tamariki and whānau. 

>Tāmaki Makaurau CLD Drop-in Zui

Want to connect with others working in CLD in Tāmaki Makaurau?  Keen to share ideas and learn about what others are doing in different parts of Auckland? Our Tāmaki Makaurau CLD Drop-in is a chance for you to put CLD principles into practice by sharing stories of what you’ve been working on and harnessing the wisdom and experience of others on the drop-in. Each one of us can be a resource for others!

Bring your lunch and jump online. Meet some new people, get some ideas, and share what you’re seeing and noticing about CLD too. Please join us using the zoom information below, or register to receive an email reminder.

Tuesday 6th September, 12:30-1:30 pm
