Have Your Say

SEWN alerts readers to consultation processes or lobbying initiatives that we think are of particular relevance to the social services sector or to non-profit organisations.  However you can keep an eye out for issues of importance to you or your organisation by regularly visiting the following websites:

Christchurch City Council consultations: http://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/have-your-say/whats-happening-now/consultations/

Central government consultations: https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/sc/business-before-committees/

Action Station is a great NGO and website to see what submissions are open and how to quickly submit an email or sign a petition on a current issue. http://www.actionstation.org.nz/campaigns or https://www.facebook.com/ActionStationNZ
