The Ministry for Ethnic Communities is supporting ethnic service providers and communities following Cyclone Gabrielle and the Auckland Anniversary floods.
Communities responded quickly to both events, helping each other source food, shelter and other basic needs. Ethnic service providers have worked tirelessly to ensure communities’ needs are met.
In our new cyclone and flooding hub, you’ll find key information about the situation, links to relevant information from government agencies working directly on the response, and much more.
The Ministry for Ethnic Communities is the government’s chief advisor on ethnic communities, ethnic diversity and the inclusion of ethnic communities in wider society.
Ethnic communities make a huge contribution to Aotearoa New Zealand's social fabric and economy. They represent 20 per cent of our population; almost a million people and growing. We are an increasingly diverse nation and this diversity is a source of strength.
On this site, you will find information about our organisation, our work and the communities we serve.
