I’ll say it again.
I have said it before and I will say it again. The government is pooling the funding. This means that for groups to receive funding they have to work together to get more funding.
Maybe Jim’s opinion on this, just maybe will back me up. (But then maybe he doesn’t see how I see things)
For example a group meeting of all interesested groups on youth was called to get the Waitakere Community together to deal with the youth problem. (Friday 16th June)
This is not the first for the doctors and dentists etc are doing the same. The government is finding a solution that is. “Instead of individually paying out funding, all work together and you will get more as a group.”
I reckon personally that a group like SKIP who got 10+ million dollars funding over the next 4 years will be the main provider and all the others will have to support and be a part else they are out of luck for money.
It makes sense for groups to get together, agree with issues and plan goals together. Not only will you make a bigger impact but you will get tax payers money. Where would men prefer to pay there taxes? For DV or mens issues?
I am still happy to find where our group belongs in all this. Shared parenting is the right thing to do but it is also a good business choice if one wants to get funding.
This is my opinion but I tell you, you will see it come to be.
