Consultation on Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Trust

The Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group is a collective of the five Hawke’s Bay local authorities required under the CDEM Act 2002 to govern and undertake CDEM within the region.

The approved CDEM Group Plan seeks to establish a Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Trust with the objective of collecting and distributing donations made by the public and organisations to assist people affected by a civil defence emergency in Hawke’s Bay.

Establishing a Trust would enable us to put in place the mechanisms to immediately seek and administer donations as a charity before a disaster occurs. This will allow for donated funds to be distributed as quickly as possible to those most in need. The funds that would be placed in the Trust are not Council funds, nor are they funds that would otherwise be coming to Council.

As the Trustees would need to be appointed by the Hawke’s Bay Councils, it was necessary to establish a Council Controlled Organisation under the Local Government Act to form and administer the Trust.
