Social well-being considers our people and whether their basic needs are met, such as education, health, financial and personal security, along with the strength of our community networks.

It includes topics such as:

  • Access to healthcare
  • Affordable housing
  • Access to quality education and training opportunities
  • Community connections
  • Community safety and crime prevention
  • Recreation and entertainment opportunities

Examples of what we do in these areas:

  • Providing funding to Safer Mid Canterbury
  • Implementing a Local Alcohol Policy to help minimise alcohol related harm
  • Providing parks, reserves and community halls for recreation
