Kia ora … Nelson Tasman region attracts many people from Aotearoa and overseas and also services a large refugee community. Access to local information and connection to others are crucial for new community members to settle successfully and develop a sense of belonging.
Does your organisation struggle to engage with former refugee and migrant communities?
We are planning a new community event to support community groups, agencies and the newcomer communities: POSITIVE SETTLEMENT EXPO 2023.

Local community groups and service agencies are invited to book a stall by filling this form: https://forms.office.com/r/2mh7vJVRiE

The organising committee are aiming to arrange translators for a wide range of languages to support communities to engage with you as community groups.
Get in touch with us now to book your stall or activity space.
