Statement of Intent 2011–2014
This Statement of Intent is produced by the Ministry of Social Development. It sets out how we will work over the next three to five years to achieve high-level outcomes for the wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
Social development is about addressing immediate needs while ensuring positive outcomes in the future. It is a planned process of improving people’s wellbeing, and of enabling communities to determine how they can achieve wellbeing for themselves.
