The Social Wellbeing Agency has published its Strategy for 2021-2023. The Strategy sets out the key shifts the Agency will make, the workstreams it will deliver through, and a summary of each year's deliverables.
Chief Executive Renee Graham says of the Strategy:
"As an Agency, we have been strong in delivering data and analytics across the social sector, but our refocused purpose means we will put much more emphasis on providing advice on issues based on our well-respected data and analytics expertise. I look forward to building our work programme with the Social Wellbeing Board and Minister for Social Development, and developing policy function and increasing our visibility over the coming years so we can make an even bigger impact across the social sector."

The Social Wellbeing Agency works on challenging social-sector problems to improve people’s lives. We focus our efforts on where we can make the greatest impact to lead and shine a light on policy issues that affect the wellbeing of New Zealanders. We collaborate across the system advising on policy issues that fall between the gaps. Ultimately, we want our approaches to achieve sustainable improvements for the wellbeing of New Zealanders.
