Shining the Light on the Third Sector - OVTRK October 2016 update

As part of our work in valuing Third Sector Organisations (TSOs) we'd love to have 5 minutes of your time.  
Please follow this link to fill out the form and answer six simple questions that tell us about your mahi.  
We'll be publishing the results on our blog as part of a series where you get to be the star! 
Collecting these stories was one of the ideas that emerged from the Sector Forum on 9 Julyread more of the post on that Forum. and

We have established a new tab on the OVTRK blogspot - see Sector Report & Actions. Do send updates and additions - and keep an eye on these! We are continuing to circulate the Third Sector Recovery in Post-earthquake Christchurch report by Dr Chrys Horn, Sarah Wylie and Janet Mountier.
One Voice Te Reo Kotahi (OVTRK) sits on the Greater ChCh Psychosocial Committee  bringing voices of the Third Sector there. We know we speak from, not for the sector and so if you have any questions you'd like asked or issues raised at the table, please don't hesitate to email us - and / or join the OVTRK Organising Group - see About OVTRK to help us plan next steps. Over the last few months, OVTRK Organising Group member, Becca Bouffandeau has been attending these meetings on our behalf.  She reports that she has found the meetings incredibly informative with many organisations making deputations to the group. One of the current discussions is about the clarification of what is meant by "community-led".
