We’d love to invite you to join Community Research, the New Zealand Council of Social Services and the Social Development Partners, for a discussion of the current environment, and the considerable impact it is having on community organisations, in Alexandra on Wednesday 8th May.
We will discuss our national perspectives on key issues for the community sector, and how to best link with your local experiences on issues such as:
* Government priorities and social policy targets are impacting on our services and funding.
* Increased focus on regulation and structure is creating greater compliance demands, and need for professional expertise.
* Challenges of evidence-based and outcome-related approaches on planning and reporting systems.
* Increased focus on local community resilience and sustainability is changing the environment in which we are operating.
Alexandra COSS are hosting us on Wednesday 8 May, at St Enoch’s Church Lounge in Centennial Avenue, Alexandra (close to the round-about), starting with morning tea at 10:00AM. Session will finish by 12:30PM.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 1 May.
