Our aspirations: • To further develop sustainable local community development through social enterprise. • To continue providing visionary leadership that is challenging and supportive. • To provide a physical operating environment that drives and channels collective community energy. • To develop models for community development organisations to operate within the new Auckland governance structure. Early discussions indicate central government agencies in Auckland are also changing ‘the way business is done’ between local government, central government and community. • To further document and develop our ‘Waitakere Way’ model of collaboration and partnership, through proactively linking with other similar programmes , sharing learnings with individuals and organisations and further evolving the innovative emergent models. • To further build the capacity of local organisations, ie maintaining the benefits of the local while adapting to working with new local and regional structures such as Local Boards, the Auckland Community Development Alliance and the Social Policy Forum, and the changes at central government level.
