The aim of the Multilingual Information Network is to create a network Information Facilitators. They will help share important government information. Ensuring New Zealand’s ethnic communities receive material in languages and ways that work for them.

This network complements our work and provides an extra way for gathering community feedback and insights.

What does an Information Facilitator do?

We are considering how the role should work to best support ethnic communities. At this stage we anticipate it involving:

  • Providing insights on the information needs of their communities
  • Disseminating information through their community contacts
  • Gathering and providing feedback to us on the challenges facing their communities.

The Department of Internal Affairs Translation Service translates the messages.

The information we collate helps us to measure the reach of the Network and to strengthen our processes.
