Community Representatives on the Collective Impact Board

We are inviting self-nominations from members of the community affected by March 15 who are interested in joining the Collective Impact Board. The Collective Impact Board was established on 25 May 2021 in line with the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCOI) Recommendation 26:

Establish a Collective Impact Network and Board or other relevant mechanism  that enables Public sector agencies, non-government organisations and affected whānau, survivors and witnesses of the 15 March 2019 terrorist attack to agree a specific work programme to provide ongoing wrap-around services to affected whānau, survivors and witnesses.

Stone leaving a mark in the sand

The Board is in place until May 2023 and has two main aims:

  1. To provide recommendations to the Kaiwhakaoranga Service(external link) on wrap-around services to support the needs of the community
  2. Create a best practice guide that can help inform wrap-around services and support should a tragedy of this nature happen again.

Current members had the option to re-sit on the Board until May 2023. A small number of members will not be sitting for a second term which has created vacant positions we are now looking to fill.

The nomination process opens Monday 30 May 2022 and closes on Friday 10 June 2022 at 5.00pm.

If you would like to be considered for a Community Representative position on the Board, please complete the self-nomination form and email it to:
