Interactionz – community support that’s powered by business
Kia ora! Interactionz is a social enterprise focused on building better lives and better communities. Profits from our commercial activities are channelled directly into providing community services – so when we deliver services for you and your organisation, your impact is felt on a much wider scale.
Our commercial activities include:
Visualisation services – our talented Visualisation Team can bring your ideas to life in three different ways: Visual Facilitation, Visual Recording and Visual Translation.
We work closely with you to understand what you want to achieve, before recommending the best service to meet your needs.
Training services – our qualified educators deliver learning experiences to community organisations to develop your team’s skills and improve the way your organisation delivers services so the people you serve can live a more rewarding life as part of the community.
By educating others we spread those benefits to the largest number of people, in the shortest possible time.
From charity to social enterprise
Interactionz has served the community for more than 50 years (read our history) and we remain driven by our vision “people leading lives that have meaning to them in communities where all can thrive”.
Our evolution from traditional charity to self-funding social enterprise enables us to keep doing what we do best, while also extending the benefit of our services into the wider community.
Lynda and Lisa were interviewed by Holly on Connect with Community Waikato (Free FM). The interview provides an overview of the work that Interactionz are doing in the community and our evolution into a social enterprise.
Using our visualisation skills to benefit the wider community
Whilst many of the highly visual planning tools we offer were developed to support people with disabilities, we discovered along the way that they have a vastly wider application, and are particularly valuable for organisations. It was this realisation that prompted us to offer them to the business community, and hence our social enterprise was born.
