From Five to Thrive

A joint initiative from four of New Zealand’s leading children’s organisations aims to put the needs of tamariki at the top of the agenda ahead of Election 2020, calling for politicians and all people in Aotearoa to support five vital ‘asks’ for children.

Launched today by Barnardos, Te Kahui Mana Ririki, Whānau Āwhina Plunket and Save the Children New Zealand, Five to Thrive identifies the five issues where urgent change is needed to ensure Aotearoa’s tamariki can thrive. The campaign asks politicians to commit to addressing these issues, and the voting public to support calls for urgent progress to be made.

The five areas of focus of Five to Thrive are: realising the potential of whānau Māori and reducing inequities; investing in children’s early years; an affordable and healthy home for every child; lifting children and their families out of poverty; and mental health support for every child and new parent that needs it.
