About Contributing

Introduction to Contributing

There are many fantastic resources created by organisations throughout New Zealand, but they can be hard to find. Looking though Google search results or browsing numerous websites can be time consuming and frustrating. CommunityNet Aotearoa gathers quality resources in one place making it easy for community organisations to search and discover the best resources for them.

CommunityNet Aotearoa is a place for organisations to share and showcase their best resources, making them available for all of New Zealand. The more quality resources we get in one place, the more useful the site becomes. If you have resources that would be good on the site, you may want to think about becoming a Contributor.

There are several way that you can share your resources on CommunityNet Aotearoa:

We also help communities of practice to share resources online so they can be easily accessed by their group's members, as well as shared with other New Zealand organisations. If you are interested in creating an online resource area for your community, please contact us
