We help New Zealanders to help themselves to be safe, strong and independent.

We’re working towards this through providing:

  • care and protection of vulnerable children and young people
  • employment, income support and superannuation services
  • funding to community service providers
  • social policy and advice to government
  • student allowances and loans
  • social housing assessments.
