Our story in 2019/20 - Annual Report 2019/20

A family playing netball together.

This section describes the work we did in 2019/20 to help New Zealanders become safe, strong and independent by supporting and providing advice on the Government’s priorities, providing services to New Zealanders, partnering with other groups and agencies to improve people’s outcomes, and responding to the challenge of a global pandemic unprecedented in living memory.

Both our COVID-19 response and our business-as-usual work contributed towards achievement of the three outcomes set out in Te Pae Tawhiti – making sure New Zealanders:

  • get the support they require
  • are resilient and live in inclusive and supportive communities
  • participate positively in society and reach their potential.
