Community Response Forums
The Community Response Forums represent a new level of partnership between government and the community. Forum members are drawn from communities, iwi, government agencies, and other funders including philanthropic organisations. The community members have been appointed to their role for the wide range of skills and experience they collectively bring to the Forum, including community knowledge, sound financial, governance and management skills, whānau and or community networks and experience or skills in advocating for and leading change and innovation in communities.
Regional Community Response Forums
Forums are responsible for engaging communities to identify priorities, scoping existing services, and developing three year plans in line with Government's priorities and the community's identified needs. This plan will inform the future allocation of funds.
There are 12 Community Response Forums throughout New Zealand covering all territorial authorities. These pages will be updated as the Forums' work progresses.
