Annette King: Labour spokesperson on Health. December 2013

ComVoices met with Annette King and recapped the role of ComVoices and the fact that ComVoices was an independent collaborative network of approximately 22 Wellington NGOs.  We explained that meeting with her was one of a series of meetings being held with MPs to deliver key messages on ‘whole of sector’ and ‘whole of government’ issues, so that MP’s were well informed as they contributed to the the development of party policy in the coming election year.

A key introductory message was that the sector was currently under stress and resilience and sustainbility was in question.  We shared the key messages from ComVoices and the 2011 Communities Count paper, which we will be updating in 2014.
