What is this project about? 

This research is being conducted in response to the challenges identified by Community Health Organisations in the Waikato (CHOs). These challenges include an increasing need for services, under-resourcing of the sector, volunteer fatigue, and a change in focus of funding priorities for many traditional grant-making organisations.


With this, Community Waikato have commissioned this research to review how the CHOs in the region can operate in a sustainable way in the future and best serve their communities. As such this research will seek to explore the following questions  

  • What role do Community Health Organisations (CHOs) play in the communities they serve? How can this work be optimised and sustained?   

  • What value are CHOs providing to their communities?   

  • What is the need for CHOs in the community?   

In order to understand the value that these organisations bring and how they could improve this value, we’d like to talk to people that have lived experience with the conditions that these organisations focus on. As such, we’re interested in talking with 20 people who have experiences living with or supporting a person with any of the following health conditions:  

  • Amputation

  • Aspergers

  • Asthma

  • Brain injury   

  • Dementia 

  • Diabetes

  • Endometriosis 

  • Epilepsy

  • Hearing loss

  • Mental health

  • Multiple Sclerosis     

  • Stroke 

What do I need to do if I participate? 

This research is being completed via qualitative research using in-depth interviews. In depth interviews are one-on-one semi-structured discussions between a participant and a trained interviewer, however participants can bring a support person, if required. Participants will be required to participate in a 45 minute - 1 hour interview either over the phone or via Zoom. You will get $50 for your time.
