What we can do for

Providers / Ngā ratonga hapori

Supporting providers through COVID-19

We know the COVID-19 situation is having widespread implications and we’re working together with providers so services can continue wherever possible.

Building Financial Capability

Building Financial Capability services aim to build the financial capability of New Zealanders experiencing hardship.

Social Services Accreditation (formerly MSD Approvals)

Social Services Accreditation ensures social sector agency-funded providers are capable of delivering high quality services for people who access them. Social Services Accreditation reviews providers, on behalf of many social sector agencies, against a set of Standards for Approval.

Outcomes Capability Planning and Assessment Tool

The tool aims to build providers' capability in meaningfully reporting on effective results and developing good outcomes data

Results Based Accountability

Results Based Accountability™ (RBA) is a simple, common sense framework which communities and organisations can use to focus on results/outcomes to make a positive change for their communities, whānau and clients.

Pay equity settlement

The Ministry is working with providers who employ vocational and disability care and support workers to implement a landmark pay equity settlement.

Ka Hao Tangata Grant Fund

The Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has established a grant fund – Ka Hao Tangata - to support smaller community-based organisations to provide services to a specified group of individuals to improve their work-readiness and future employment potential.

Ka Hao Tangata is being trialled in the Auckland Region between September 2018 and December 2019.

Applications for the fund open from 20 August 2018.
