The Trust is committed to a vision of equitable funding. A high priority in the Trust’s strategic plan is the development of a Pacific Strategy to ensure accessible and equitable funding to Pacific communities.
In 2010, the Trust began a dialogue with the seven largest Pacific communities and youth in the Auckland area, and with Pacific communities in Northland, to inform its Pacific Strategy. This summary paper explains the reasons for the dialogue and offers a brief account of the journey so far. It also highlights matters discussed in recent fono and records observations and lessons, next steps and conclusions.
