The Local Government Act 2002 requires New Zealand local authorities to become actively involved in the development of social well being. Recent research indicates that the community and social services sector are cynical of local authorities’ ability to work with them. I argue that if local authorities undertake the groundwork to develop effective relationships with the community and social services sector they will be in an ideal place to achieve the intent of the Local Government Act 2002.
