There are numerous resources available from a range of places to help you maintain, develop, grow, manage and direct your organisation. SociaLink has chosen just a few and arranged them by category. You will have your own resources to add to these. On this page are some generic resources that cover many facets of the ‘business’.

This Orientation package has been developed by SociaLink to give indepth information into the social sector within the western Bay of Plenty.

It contains a huge amount of information that will be extremely useful for those wishing to better understand the social sector – whether a graduating student, a business interested in philanthropy,  a new comer to the area or someone wishing to move to employment in this sector.

CommunityNet Aotearoa is an online hub designed to strengthen communities. It is fully searchable and you can even add your own resources. It has a wide range of useful tools and information.

Although this resource bank has been developed for sport, it is equally valuable for many not for profit social sector organisations. Many of the modules are online learning modules. It is also searchable.
