After the Sept 2010 earthquake, a series of meetings were held with community organisations in Christchurch to enable them to learn from each other about supporting their communities and to provide them with information about the process of recovery after a natural disaster.

This report summarises what groups and organisations were doing in their communities, what needs their communities had, and their own needs were for support to continue their work.
