Our Insights


Creating Wellbeing for all

The purpose of the Impact Collective is to nurture a regenerative economy within a thriving community that creates wellbeing for all people, our whenua and the planet.

This will be achieved by breaking down organisational and territorial boundaries and focusing on our communities holistically – through economic, social and environmental determinants.

It is not about viewing our communities solely in terms of health, or wealth, or access, or vulnerability, but rather in terms of the whole person – a whānau ora approach.

This will ensure that our resources, our services and our collective wellbeing is equitably shared across our rohe, founded in the principles of Mātauranga Māori.

Who are we serving:
Our Rohe, our Whenua

The collective agreed that organisational and territorial boundaries are required to be removed in order to work for the communities we serve.

In essence, creating a series of porous boundaries which enables communities to participate should they align to the purpose of the Impact Collective, tūrangawaewae to the rohe, or are tangata whenua.

A Collective Response

In response to the communities goals and aspirations, the Impact Collective will set about collating the ‘Stats and the Stories’ from the community and present these in ‘Community Equity and Wellbeing Profiles’ (Phase 1). These will look at the strengths and concerns for our communities across the economic, environmental and social landscapes.

In Phase 2, through the findings of phase 1 and a maturity-based system, we will co-design services and supplies with our communities to enable them to live in Thriving Communities.

Key Drivers

Throughout the engagement with our community in the post-level 4 lockdown environment, they shared that it is important that as community leaders we:

  • Need to work in an integrated manner for the betterment of our communities
  • Develop services through co-design – “stop doing to us and work with us”
  • Listen first, then take action.
  • Focus on social, environmental and economic services
  • Link with the 17SDGs, Living Standards Framework and Whānau Ora Framework.
  • The Health and Disability System Reviews Tier One Commissioning
