What is the Taituarā Community Well-being Service, and how can it help with measuring well-being outcomes?

The Community Well-being Service includes a range of resources to support your councils well-being journey. The data service contains a range of indicators which can be used to support your strategic planning and Long-Term Plan process and can be used in council workshops. 

The indicators are presented as flexible, tailored and easy to understand reports and dashboards which can be shared with internal and external stakeholders and the community.

The indicators provide a snapshot of the well-being of YOUR community.

Knowing where you're at helps to work out where you need to go, the outcomes you want to achieve, and how you're going to achieve them.
