Group studies social services By MELISSA KINEALY A new group is holding a magnifying glass up to the community to improve social support services. The Auckland South Community Response Forum was one of 14 set up by the government across the country to transform the way social support services are delivered.. And since December it's been meeting with the community and asking if people know what family and com- munity support services are available and whether they're working and meeting needs. The forum's made up of community members Sandra Alofivae, Gaelle Deighton, Chris King, Peter O'Brien, Diane Maloney and Karyn McLeod who are working with government agency representatives from Counties Manukau Dis- trict Health Board, police, Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs, Te Puni Kokiri and Ministry of Social Development. Ms Maloney says the group's looking at specific service gaps in particular areas of the community and is talking about how services can work. In a short space of time we are trying to meet as many people as we can.'' The group's had meetings in Otahuhu, Manurewa -- with a focus on Randwick Park and Wiri and Rata Vine -- and Papakura, she says. We are here to ask the communities how the services are going.'' Forum members are listening to recommen- dations and hope to improve the way programmes are run. They aim to work with local boards. Go to www.family services.govt.nz for more information.
