Content guidelines

Standard policies applying to all content on this website

We invite resources from anyone working in or with tangata whenua and community organisations. We aim to have diverse content reflecting the many cultures in New Zealand. Material in Te Reo Maori can be published here.

The focus of the website is on: Learning and development resources for community organisations

Resources must be: Free, complete, and stand-alone.

Resources submitted to CommunityNet Aotearoa are not pre-moderated. That means that the resources go up immediately and we don't have an opportunity to read them before they are published. The administrator will do their best to moderate material published on the site, but we ask users for their help. This is a community site and so we ask that you help moderate and ensure contributions are correct and adhere to the guidelines. Material that violates the submission guidelines will be removed from the site without recourse to the contributor.

If you feel a contribution has broken the guidelines, or identify any other issue, please Contact us to report the problem and the site administrator will investigate your concern.
