There are many organisations that share our vision of a successful multicultural New Zealand. Associated organisations are those with whom we have an on-going relationship which may involve sharing information, consultation, cooperation and joint projects or programmes. If your organisation supports our objectives and would like to work with us or stay in touch with us, we would welcome hearing from you and discussing possibilities.
