Social Equity & Wellbeing Network Tuia te Oranga

SEWN is an old friend with a new name. Established in late 1978/early 1979 we have been known for many years as COSS (Council of Social Services). Over the years we have established a strong reputation for supporting social justice and equity, strengthening and empowering the not for profit sector and having productive relationships with central and local governments.                                                            

SEWN is known as an excellent source of information.  Our news items and notices are interesting, thought-provoking, timely, and relevant to social equity or to the wellbeing of the non-profit sector. Get all the latest news and notices in our  highly-regarded monthly newsletter

Between newsletters we send out email notices of things that can’t wait.  To sign up to our email network, contact kaituiora@sewn.org.nz

You can also keep in touch with current news and issues by ‘liking’ us on Facebook

From time to time we hold or help organise events and hui.  You can find out about these on our Upcoming Events page

We use our collective voice to lead to policy action, social change and community empowerment to address marginalisation and promote social equity.  We’re also a big advocate for the non-profit sector.  Find out about current activities and how you can contribute go to: Sector Voice

A flourishing non-profit sector is vital for flourishing communities.  SEWN is involved in several projects to support and enhance sector capability.

We can also provide one-on-one information and advice, or help you find the support you need to manage your non-profit.
