Between December 2010 and February 2011 Healthy Christchurch and the Council of Social Services in Christchurch held a series of meetings for community groups to look at the effects of the September earthquake and needs arising from it. You or a member of your community organisation came to one of these meetings.
The things we learned from those meetings have now been developed into a report, which is attached.
As you will see, we are planning to develop some projects to help address the needs that were identified. We will also be sending this report to a wide range of other people and organisations, such as central and local government politicians and staff, CERA, and funders. We hope that they will find the information that you and the other attendees provided useful.
Thank you for your participation in these meetings and your patience and continued support as we adjusted to the impact of the February quake. Our best wishes to you as you continue to support your communities.
Sharon and Michelle.
