Collaborative Voices
Feb 22 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

38032_290Collaborative Voices profiles community organisations and their people in a way that actively demonstrates how organisations are working.

In recent years agencies engaged in providing community services have been gaining a greater profile. The scale and contribution of the not-for-profit sector to our community and country is significant.

For instance, Statistics New Zealand has released figures that confirmed there were 97,000 non-profit organisations operating in New Zealand, employing 105,000 paid employees and supported by more than 430,000 volunteers. Just under 26,000 of these are charities registered with the Charities Commission.

Keeping the community sector up-to-date about topical issues is the key purpose of Collaborative Voices. It’s a regular, informal conversation on air with someone or about something as a way of keeping people informed.

The programme is an initiative of Community Newtorks Aotearoa(CNA).

Created by Access Radio Wellington.

Presented by Ros Rice (CNA).
