Ethnic Advisory Group

To achieve the goal of building a socially inclusive society through citizen participation, Asian Family Services created an Ethnic Advisory Group in early 2021 to connect with the publicly funded agencies to include ethnic diverse viewpoints, especially on issues relating to mental health and wellbeing.

Asian Family Services' vision is that people of all Asian heritage and backgrounds lead flourishing and fulfilling lives in an equitable Aotearoa New Zealand. The Ethnic Advisory Group seeks to widen the scope of Asian heritage to include not only Asian, but Middle Eastern, Latin American, Continental European, and African people. It also includes new and temporary migrants, former refugees, asylum-seekers, long-term settlers and those born in New Zealand.

The purpose of the Ethnic Advisory Group is to provide quality advice from the ethnic lived experience perspective to the health and social strategies. This includes supporting and participating in strategic projects and connecting the strategy with a broad and diverse range of ethnic consumers, families and whānau.

Asian Family Services welcome agencies who wish to use the advisory group in consultation with their strategies. However, the advisory group members are volunteers; a standard of $50 for two hours to compensate for their time, effort, and involvement is much appreciated. Asian Family Services will help to support the administration process. For any enquiries, please email [email protected]
