Following our success of contracting the position for years 2 and 3, we would like to continue to employ and resource a CDLP Partnership Manager for the next 2 years. This will cover the remainder of our partnership yrs 4-5 (~ 18 months), and cover a further 6 months transition. We anticipate further admin and support will be required following the end of our CLDP partnership in September 2022, which the remainder of the funds applied for will contribute to.
How does this relate to our community plan?
The Karamea CLDP Partnership Group has recognised the challenges and limitations of our own capacity to achieve community-led development aspirations in Karamea, and the value-add that a PTE paid and well resourced CLDP Partnership Manager position has in supporting the implementation of citizen-led community goals that contribute to achieving the overall community vision. The role will continue to strengthen across-community communication, deepen engagement, bring multiple stakeholders together and support the principles of community-led development.
