Understanding Social Recovery

This report provides social recovery practitioners with strategies, activities and lessons learned by CERA’s social recovery leaders between 2011 and 2016. It describes the recovery context of greater Christchurch; the leadership challenges and opportunities and the skills and values necessary for social recovery leadership. It outlines the importance of recovery monitoring and evidence and the strategic activities that progress community resilience and housing recovery.

We cannot underestimate the length of time this takes. This is a long haul. We’ll be walking this path together for the next 10, 20 years.
