From the NZFVC

The Government has begun work on developing a Child Wellbeing Strategy. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Children’s Minister Tracey Martin held a forum in Wellington on 24 May 2018 with representatives from community groups to discuss children’s wellbeing.

Tracey Martin said “Over the next couple of months, officials will continue to seek input from groups, like those we are meeting with today, before beginning a broader public engagement process in the second half of the year." She also said the Strategy would be focused around safety, security, connectedness, wellness and development.

An initial version of the strategy is expected to be published next year.
