Carer's Strategy Consultation

Carers’ Strategy Consultation Hui


Wednesday 24 July 2019, 10am-1pm

Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu

10 Show Place

Addington, Christchurch 8024


We want to gain feedback from carers on the proposed Carers’ Strategy Action Plan to make sure the Plan is right for carers and reflects what matters most to carers and their whānau.  

A carer is anyone who looks after a friend, family, whānau or fanau member with a disability, health condition, illness or injury.

Over time, the aim is to have a system of support for carers that is more proactive to ensure people get the support they are entitled to, responsive and centred on whānau.

E nga rangatira, nga hunga ma e tika ana mo tenei mahi.
Horahia te kupu ki te tono mo tenei mahi – Mauriora.

Based in Richmond and reporting to the Chief Executive, this is a senior advisor role to the Chief
Executive, the Leadership Team, and the Mayor and Councillors. In this role you will take the lead
in the development of strategic and operational rangatira to rangatira relationships between the
Tasman District Council and the nine iwi of the Tasman District. As such, you will have the mana to
stand and engage with the leaders of the nine iwi, community groups and staff.

You will also provide cultural support to the Chief Executive, Mayor and Councillors, and Council

regions. Our population is around 48,000 and our area covers about 9,000 km2.

The climate, a beautiful coastline and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors are the some of the main reasons why people choose to be here.
We offer a great place to live and work, an attractive salary plus benefits, and assistance with relocation is available.

Hi there!

We have a couple of exciting events to tell you about!

At the end of August we will be celebrating PDC’s 4th Birthday! We will be having a little celebration in the early evening on Friday 30 August. Please mark the date in your diary and we will come back to you with more details shortly.

Then on Sunday 22 September we will be co-hosting the “Top of the South Trapping Workshop” together with the Department of Conservation, Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary and Nelson Nature. The details of the event are provided in the attached invitation. Please make sure that you RSVP to

Finally, if you are also in our database as a Garden Trapper, you will be receiving a very short and easy survey. We are planning to increase the focus and effort on predator control in the urban area. It would be a great help to us if you could please respond to the survey.

We hope that you have been having a good, and rodent free, winter!

Best wishes
The PDC Team
