Canterbury Wellbeing Advisory Group

Wellbeing Advisory Groups are set up in response to significant events where there may be substantial wellbeing issues for the affected community.


The Canterbury Wellbeing Advisory Group is an extension of the existing All-of-Government psycho-social committee that was formed after the 2010-2011 earthquakes. It provides feedback and advice to the NZCRS on wellbeing issues.
