Community Connection Service

On 23 July 2020 the Minister of Social Development announced that Community Connector positions are being established within communities across Aotearoa ($41.25 million over the next two years).

The positions are being funded out of the Government’s COVID Response and Recovery Fund, which is focused on supporting community wellbeing and sustainability.

What is the Community Connection Service?

The Community Connection Service takes an active approach to ensuring people are able to access information and services across multiple government agencies and service providers.

Where is the Community Connection Service available?

We’ve partnered with existing MSD-funded service providers in communities where there is need. These providers have the capacity to stand up a workforce to deliver the Community Connection Service.

Who should I contact with questions?

Please email Community_Information@msd.govt.nz with the subject line ‘Community Connection Service’ with any questions.
