Time to shine, time to take stock, time to shape our future
Results are now ready Otago: findings from tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector COVID-19 impact survey.
Otago Community Trust encouraged a wide number of our Otago community groups to participate in this survey. Across the country there was a tremendous response rate.
This report details the findings of a survey of Aotearoa New Zealand’s tangata whenua, community and voluntary sector in May-June 2020 on the impacts of COVID-19 (as recorded in Levels 2 and 1 of lockdown).
The research is a partnership between the Centre for Social Impact, Hui E! Community Aotearoa, Philanthropy New Zealand, and Volunteering New Zealand.
Common threads are emerging in experiences being reported across the sector, in the desire to harness the power and potential of what was activated during lockdown, and in the will and enthusiasm to reshape the future alongside central and local government, philanthropy and the business sectors.
We will now be encouraging discussion and debate around next steps. We will be discussing the report findings within our networks, making recommendations for action and working with key influencers to achieve positive change.
