Communities Action Trust (CATNZ)

The Communities Action Trust (CATNZ) was established in 2008 with a vision of empowering multicultural communities of New Zealand. CATNZ aims to meet this vision through arts, community services, outreach programmes, training, educational initiatives and projects. CATNZ promotes social inclusion and the well-being of diverse communities. CATNZ is particularly successful at promoting community participation and cultural awareness by providing a platform for activities and events such as cultural festivals and community engagement programmes.
