Community Development

The programme has now concluded.

From June 2010 to June 2013 the Hurunui District Council received funding from the Department of Internal Affairs to employ a Community Development Advisor to strengthen and connect community groups through a range of activities and projects.
The Minister of Social Development, Paula Bennett, established Community Response Forums (“the Forum”) in 2010 in order to improve the understanding within her Ministry of what local people think about the social and well-being issues in their communities. The results of this forum in the Hurunui Communities can be downloaded here (4.5Mb)  CRF-Hurunui-Report-Final-July-2014.pdf
