We’re a small government agency with a big reach across the social system. We take a broad view, looking at issues that New Zealanders face but don’t fit neatly into the work of a single agency. This allows us to get actionable insights to decision-makers, and ensure that real people – whānau and communities – are involved in and benefit from the work we do. Ultimately, we want to achieve sustainable improvements for the wellbeing of New Zealanders.

Our people are our centre. They’re curious, agile and hardworking, and instinctively care about the wellbeing of others. Our values are important to us – they guide how we show up at work. We’ve achived the Domstic Violence Free tick(external link), we embrace our diverse workforce and culture, and we support flexible working arrangements.
