ComVoices discussed the scale and scope of the Community Sector, the work of ComVoices and gave Sue a copy of the 2011 Communities Count Paper.
We discussed the Community Dialogues which have been held around the country, but SDP, NZCOSS, Volunteering NZ and Community Research and the responses to these.
We talked about the relationships that we hoped Labour would work with in the sector, and passed on the key messages (plus ensuring Sue understood these were a work in progress.)
We undertook to continue to meet with different MPs in the Labour Party to ensure that we keep conversation about issues for our sector on the radar of the Labour party.
Sue noted she intends to start an e-newsletter to the sector.
