What does a thriving community and voluntary sector look like as we move into a post-pandemic era?

Elections matter and are a good opportunity to engage directly with those who make the decisions which impact the wellbeing of our society.  The pandemic has brought into sharp focus the inequalities which have festered far too long. Now is the time to shape a new way forward which provides as much focus on our social, cultural and environmental needs as the economic obsessions of the past.

Hui E! Community Aotearoa, ComVoices, Sue Barker Charities Law and Trust Democracy are bringing together Members of Parliament and political party members to tell us about their party’s vision and planned policies to support a thriving and sustainable sector. The kōrero will be a free webinar moderated by a political commentator and there will be time for questions from the audience.  As an on-line webinar, you can participate from wherever you live or work.  Please join us and make your voice heard!

You can also keep up to date with the latest information and join the conversation on the webinar Facebook event page where we encourage people to join now to initiate discussion around the most important issues to be focused on during the webinar.

A good guide to what may be in store can be gleaned from what the parties have suggested their priorities will be at the last election.  Have a read of this short summary of Community & Voluntary sector party policies from 2017 in advance to understand the promises unfulfilled.
