Who We Are

St Anne house

Previously known as Family and Community, Anglican Care Community Development has for nearly 25 years worked alongside communities in the Christchurch and Canterbury/Westland region.

Using a Community Development process, a diverse range of projects have evolved with the communities in

We also have  two Partnership Health Workers.

What is meant by a Community Development Process?

” Community Development is a participatory process including all people collectively working to facilitate change and address issues.”

Workers engage with the local community to ascertain community strengths, needs and goals. Research is undertaken and local people involved in the decisions as to what activities they want to develop.

As the community is involved from the outset, the community development process results in strengthened communities and improvement in social and physical well being.
