Our CLD training opportunities are based on our core principles of collaboration, diversity and local leadership where everyone is enabled to apply their strengths. Our workshops offer you insights in the many tools the CLD way of working can offer to support and strengthen your mahi in your community. Each workshop is led by one of our skilled facilitators working across a variety of community-led projects.

Inspiring Communities has a suite of skills workshops that are designed to strengthen your community-led practice and local connections. If you are interested in co-hosting a workshop with us in 2024, please contact our team on events@inspiringcommunities.org.nz.

Meet your facilitator: Kindra is driven by seeing movement in individuals, groups and communities to generate change. With a background in working for affordable housing, trained as both a teacher and a counsellor, founding chair of Nelson Tasman Housing Trust in 2004, and founding Director of the Victory Community Centre in 2007, she is a person who’s not afraid to look through a different lens to bring people together. Kindra offers her Pathways to Power personal development course to women in Nelson, is an active Trustee on Community Action Nelson where they advance perception changes in different ways to be housed, and how more affordable housing can be created. With a full and rich professional career in collaborating and connecting people, Kindra is always looking for ways to connect communities and help them find ways to look after their people.
