SociaLink collaborated with Western Bay of Plenty District Council (WBOPDC) and Powerdigm, the consulting arm of Inspiring Communities to shape this project. Powerdigm took the lead on the project and took a case study approach, involving reaching out to six locally-led initiatives doing amazing things to enhance wellbeing in their part of Aotearoa.

Their insights, combined with Inspiring Communities, offer new guidance for councils and others, on how to work with and effectively support local ‘anchor’ organisations. We hope this Think Piece will inspire further exploration of collaborative community-led approaches and experimentation in supporting local communities in the Western Bay and across Aotearoa.
