What we do

Sector engagement

Our Agency brings the whole of New Zealand’s social system into view to enable social innovation that really works. Because together, we can understand and do more of what works,...


We deliver actionable insights to key social sector decision makers, making evidence informed decision making easier.


Improving social services with better decision-making begins by analysing available data about people’s lives and wellbeing.

Data systems

Better decision making is supported by safe, secure acess to and the respectful use of people’s data and information.
