Social Sector Trials

The Social Sector Trials are a social change model focused on improving outcomes by testing an alternative approach to social service delivery in communities. The approach is centred around a community member or non-governmental organisation, who shapes cross-agency resources with local organisations and government agencies to deliver more collaborative, directed and effective social services.

The Trials are supported at the national, regional and local level by the Ministries of Education, Health, Justice, Social Development and the New Zealand Police.

There are sixteen Trials currently running in a range of communities around New Zealand.
