Maori Community Development Worker Scheme

The Maori Community Development Worker Scheme came about as a Government capacity-building initiative designed to tranfser skills to enable Maori communities to solve their own problems and thus contribute to an increase in self-reliance. The Deparment administers funding for two community organisations to employ Maori Community Development Workers to test the effectiveness of this approach. Those organisations are

  • Tuwharetoa ki Kawerau Hauora Trust, Kawerau; and
  • Hinengakau Development Trust, Taumarunui

Funding is for up to three years and provides for salary costs, operating expenses such as travel, communications, office and administrative overheads, and programme expenses. The workers will focus on building the capacity of the communities to create and sustain development opportunities by passing on training, planning, negotiation, project management, business planning, fund raising/marketing and relationship-building skills.
