Community Engagement Workshops

Auckland & Christchurch

An approach to effective community engagement for localities

Proudly bought to you by Collaborative Aotearoa, we are pleased to offer Community Engagement Workshops in Auckland and Christchurch.

Open to those in Primary and Community sectors these interactive workshops will leave you inspired to work with and for your community to enable whānau to flourish.

A key component of the health system reforms is the establishment of localities, a place, and people, based approach to improving the health of populations through organising health and social services to meet the needs identified by whānau and community. This approach requires people and organisations to collaborate on health and wellbeing outcomes and plan how to work together to achieve these.  A critical part of locality planning is elevating the voice and aspirations of whānau and communities through effective community engagement.

Learning outcomes

  • Learn the first part of public narrative, how to tell a Story of Self, that invites others to be in relationship with you based on shared values
  • Learn how to build relationships to develop leadership, community and power
  • Develop an understanding of the core practices of successful leadership teams to drive change
  • Learn a people-centered approach to strategising for change
