In our April 2019 Survey, we asked over 6,000 people and organisations in the Tangata Whenua, Community and Voluntary Sector, what difference we make.
300 people told us in their own words and the themes were:
- People are better at working with communities
- Organisations are setting better strategies
- They are using evidence to make improvements
- People feel connected and informed and their collective capability has been fostered
- Māori aspirations are being met
- People are using an amazing collection of essential tools and resources, whenever and wherever they need them, including rural and isolated groups
- They are undertaking better research
‘There is a valuable, organised body of Aotearoa community research and “how to” resources accessible to people I work with doing community-led māhi that makes doing and using research within reach. I often refer students or community organisations struggling with how to do effective evaluation to Community Research.’
– 2019 Survey Respondent
