"... a network of Residents Association and Community Group representatives from the earthquake-affected neighbourhoods of Canterbury. We aim for full community engagement in recovery processes and to work in partnership with recovery agencies."
CanCERN is trying very hard, on behalf of communities like ours, to make sure our needs and views reach those who make the decisions. They are not an advocacy group, but work to help make "things" happen to our benefit.
CanCERN now has its own website, www.CanCERN.org.nz. The website is still in its early stages and needs more work to fulfil it's ambition of being a place to find important information, the issues, and what is happening, in the rebuilding of Christchurch. Keep an eye on it and let me know what you would like to have added. I will pass that on. They also have a blog.
