Our main resource is the Advocacy and Social Change method that we teach in workshops, training and consultancy. We also prepare larger reports to engage with specific issues in deeper ways.

Here are the reports we’ve produced over the last few years that are still relevant:

  1. A Community Organising Pilot for Civic Participation and Advocacy

    In 2016 we undertook a community organising project in Christchurch as a pilot to see
    if this was a viable working model for our work. This report outlines the outcomes of the project and
    discusses the process. Anglican Advocacy, 2016. Download PDF

  2. SIGNIFICANT SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES IN SOUTH CANTERBURY

    This is the most up-to-date research on Social Justice Issues south of the Rakaia, and will guide the work of the Anglican Church in the area over the coming years. Ruth Swale, September 2014. Download PDF

  3. PAPER WALLS

    Paper Walls is New Zealand’s leading legal research on the law that’s meant to protect rental housing tenants. It’s written in plain language with a friendly case study to help non-lawyers understand it easily. Click here to go to the Paper Walls website and have a read. Lyndon Rogers, November 2013.

Civics Competition in Schools

Our civics competition in schools runs every year on a contemporary theme. Teaching resources, curriculum ideas, and creative ways to engage are provided. Students in previous years have written submission, spoken to politicians, engaged with media, raised awareness, and created an art exhibition in Parliament. Follow the current competition on the Civics Facebook Page.
