LEAP promotes the local economies of Ashhurst and Pohangina

LEAP will serve a combination of the following purposes as capacity allows.

1. LEAP will work to enhance our area's economic resilience through initiatives such as a community market, a business directory, a local currency, and a volunteer time bank. 

2. LEAP will serve as an umbrella organisation for self-organising, informal groups that are developing local self-reliance, such as co-operatives or savings pools..

3. LEAP will promote 'buy local' and community-based ecnomic solutions that enhance economic resilience, social connectivity, and community well-being.

4. LEAP will raise awareness of ecnomic issues related to systemic social injustice, ecological degradation, and the weakening of communities of place.
