Ministry of Social Development

Our responsibility as a government department is to lead social development to achieve better futures for all New Zealanders. To do this we need strong families, safe communities and positive aging. And these results are at the heart of our business - in the research we undertake and the advice we provide to government on social policy and in the range of services we provide to New Zealanders.
