Warmer Canterbury Working Group

The Warmer Canterbury Working Group was established in May 2012 to identify and either address or escalate issues facing Canterbury residents through the cooler months.

The working group has largely met its aims and many of the resulting projects and programmes are now well embeded into the relevant organisations. Consequently the Warmer Canterbury Working Group was disestablished in August 2014.

The working group was made up of government agencies and community groups that have a responsibility for sectors of the population; major winter warmth projects or initiatives, and/or have key links into communities of most need.
