    The Office of Ethnic Communities is pleased to invite you to its series of Building Sustainable Funding Workshops, aimed at helping you get funding for your community organisation.

    We’re partnering with Philanthropy New Zealand on workshops in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to help community organisations build a better understanding of the not-for-profit sector, including the best places to seek funding and how to develop robust commercial funding proposals for accessing funding.

  • Supporting Communities

    The Department of Internal Affairs is committed to helping New Zealand build strong communities. One of the ways it seeks to achieve this is by ensuring that there is clear and helpful information on the services available, and by supporting communities that need to access the various services.

    The Department has developed a series of videos to ensure that communities have a better understanding of the services available from the Department, and improve access to these services.
