Kia ora – Welcome to What Works!

This site helps the people who make Aotearoa New Zealand a better place – especially smaller community groups who can struggle to show the value of their work.

It aims to help people gather robust data and information to tell a real story about what they are doing and the difference it makes.

If you need to reflect on your work, demonstrate its effectiveness and keep improving your practice, this site is for you.
