The NZ Navigator Trust is creating a growing portfolio of digital spaces to equip a thriving charitable and community sector in Aotearoa New Zealand.
NZ Navigator is an online self-assessment designed for community organisations to assess themselves across nine domains of operation including governance, strategic direction, finances, people management and communications.
The final assessment links the organisation to resources held on CommunityNet Aotearoa.
Together these free tools enable groups to develop stronger organisations, set their own priorities for action and access resources to assist in that development.
Providing free online tools is an effective response to the changing needs of organisations, giving them access to a range of tools at the time and in the way that suits them.
We believe in collaboration, in working with sector capability builders to promote and support community organisations; encouraging community organisations to share the tools, templates and case studies they have successfully designed in their own work; and by listening to and incorporating feedback from users.
The Trust itself has grown out of a collaboration between community partners, Platform Trust and Bishop’s Action Foundation, successfully working alongside Department of Internal Affairs and Charities Services.
