Child Wellbeing Unit


Making New Zealand the best place in the world to be a child is a Government priority.

The Prime Minister, Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, in her role as the Minister for Child Poverty Reduction, and the Minister for Children, Hon Tracey Martin, are jointly leading the development of the Government's first Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy.

The Strategy is an opportunity to significantly improve the lives of New Zealand's children. It will set out the actions the Government intends to take to improve the wellbeing of all New Zealand children.

The Child Wellbeing Unit has been established in DPMC to support Ministers in this work.
