We're backing our ethnic communities

Aotearoa is home to over 200 ethnicities. This week we announced we're increasing the Ethnic Communities Development Fund from $520,000 to $4.2 million each year - meaning we can support more of the community initiatives that help build a stronger, safer more connected and inclusive society.

The Fund will now be able to support groups to do more work, including:

promoting ethnic diversity and understanding
educating New Zealanders about the contribution of ethnic communities
developing participation in employment and society
supporting our ethnic communities to thrive through the practice and celebration of culture.

The Fund will from now on operate as a rolling fund, with applications assessed and decisions made throughout the year, rather than just once annually.

We're getting into the festive spirit

Premier House was busier than usual this week with the Prime Minister hosting her annual Christmas Party for a group of Barnados New Zealand tamariki, rangatahi and their whānau.

A Christmas feast, face painting, card making, a photo booth, and a special gift from Santa, all made this day a day to remember!
