Our Impact

People in communities across the motu continue to grapple with the significant health, social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. These impacts have been particularly felt by people who already face disadvantage and systemic injustice, as the pandemic has compounded entrenched inequality and discrimination.

Community Law Waikato - Te Tari Ture ā-Hapori o Waikato, is a registered charitable trust.

All charities in New Zealand are regulated through Charities Service, Ngā Ratonga Kaupapa Atawhai, which is part of the Department of Internal Affairs. The Service administers the Charities Act 2005 with the purpose to promote public trust and confidence in the charitable sector. The Service’s functions include registration, monitoring, processing Annual Returns, and providing educational support and advice to charities.

Our Annual Returns are available on the Charities Register. 

We also complete our own Annual Reports that accounts for our activities from year to year that can be viewed here.
