Regional councils: your involvement
Regional councils need to consult the community to pick activities to be run under the scheme. Follow these steps.
Step 1. Talk to your community
Have a look through and share the remote activity provider directory with your community.
Talk to community groups, local authorities, youth committees and other groups about the activities they are interested in.
Step 2. Fill in the form
You will need to provide a list of activities your community is interested in to the Department of Tourism and Culture by mid-February each year.
Step 3. Sign off on the proposal
The department will work with you to sign off on the activities you would like to run and plan when they take place.
Step 4. Help your provider deliver the activity
After your activities are planned you will need to help your providers deliver them. You should do the following:
- promote the activities
- make sure facilities and equipment are ready for when the providers arrive
- meet and greet the providers on their arrival - give them an orientation to the community
- make sure you have staff on the ground to help out
- make sure children go to the activities.
