From Wesley Community Action

Wesley Community Action and Deloitte have  released a report which celebrates the creative possibilities of giving communities the opportunity to come up with their own solutions to the problems caused by poverty and high levels of debt.

The report, Making Good Sense: Evidence and Lessons in Community Innovation, looks at several initiatives developed in Cannons Creek in response to concerns about the growing number of people using Wesley Community Action’s food bank.

These initiatives include the Good Cents financial wellbeing programme and the Wellington Region Fruit and Vegetable Co-op.

Wesley Community Action director David Hanna says the partnership between Deloitte and Wesley Community Action has resulted in a valuable document on community-led innovation grounded in Cannons Creek.
