ASPIRATIONS OF PEOPLE
Our commitment is to ensure that families and those working with them have access to 21st Cen-tury approaches to analysis and self-management of their needs. But the core purpose, in each of those cases, will be achieving their set goals. This is because the measurement of our success and those of all constituents and stakeholders will largely be determined from outcomes that reflect the aspirations of the people themselves.
The key to developing these bespoke systems is the Foundation’s partnership with Digital Summit Ltd., who will provide advice, expertise and project man-agement skills to ensure that specified ICT tools and resources of the highest quality are built and delivered.
QUALITY PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
Across the wider Auckland region, as in all regions across New Zealand, there are families who are accessing scores of services to address their needs. How-ever, the coordination and facilitation of these services and the initial analysis are working according to an old model or approach.
Our wide experience in areas of health, education and social services, both in Māori and mainstream, have given us cause to develop these new systems and approaches so that the Foundation will eventually be able to provide a wide array of services.
The Foundation will target the provision of support to both small- and large-sized organisations and institutions within the Auckland region and respectively, to other regions within the next 3 years if all goes according to plans.
Contracts will be serviced with the assistance of strategic alliances and partner-ships forged with other organisations that provide and enhance community development on a wide scale.
Already we have service commitments from iwi, hapu, marae from Waikato through Northland regions, and other charitable trusts in the Auckland region respectively in Counties Manukau. We plan to aggressively build our client and network base firstly within the wider Auckland region and ensure high quality professional services across the spectrum of stakeholders.
NEW PARADIGM OF ENGAGEMENT
This new paradigm of engagement will be made possible by harnessing the power and benefits of internet connectivity as a tool to support communities designed to enable them to determine their own development priorities and achieve sustainable community outcomes.
It will be proffered to these communities more clearly as the as the interplay of converged elements through an initiative that aims to express, increase and sustain their:
- cultural content; and,
By design, it will offer opportunities for stakeholders to become more actively involved in accessing key local public services that they really need. It will highlight the benefits that arise when people themselves play a proactive, more meaningful role in shaping the services they use for better outcomes in their communities – one that reaches right across the board, from supporting people who want to take an active role in their own communities, to giving them con-nectivity that delivers better access to and use of information and knowledge, and opening opportunities to better networking.
Taken together, these are the important keys that can be used to solve some of the most difficult and complex neighbourhood problems and issues because, we believe, that the parts are greater than the whole.
