Listen to Hui E! on Manaaki

Check out our Pou Kaiārahi, Rochelle Stewart-Allen, chatting with Stephen McIvor from Manaaki about:
  • how our community sector is fundamental to Aotearoa’s wellbeing and our economy
  • most people are surprised to hear the size of our sector – we’re contributing $12b to NZ’s economy ($8billion in costs + $4billion in volunteering labour)
  • we have 115,000 community groups in New Zealand, 89% of which don’t employ staff
  • there are more than 27,000 registered charities, a large percent of which have income of less than $2m
  • a large percent of small to medium charities struggle to get their good work stories heard
  • the impact COVID-19 has had on our community sector and what is needed going forward.
