MSD Announces Community Investment Strategy

June 10, 2015 at 5:42 PM

*From the NZ Family Violence Clearinghouse*

Minister for Social Development Anne Tolley has announced a "new long-term strategy for social service investment."

Ms Tolley said the Community Investment Strategy would create a "more results-focused and evidence-based approach for MSD’s purchasing of social services for vulnerable people and communities, and will also be more transparent, targeted, flexible and efficient."

The key elements of the strategy include:
  • "Focusing more clearly on priority results
  • Building the evidence base
  • Improving the quality of data collection
  • Setting a clear direction for funding
  • Simplifying compliance requirements, and
  • Building provider capability"

MSD’s purchasing of services for vulnerable people will focus on three priority areas based on the government’s Better Public Service targets:

  • "Supporting vulnerable children, children in hardship and reducing child maltreatment
  • Supporting vulnerable youth, including young offenders and reducing youth crime
  • Supporting vulnerable adult victims/survivors, addressing perpetrators’ behaviour and reducing violent crime"
Mrs Tolly said, "Over the next three years MSD will work with providers to help them transition to contracts that include results measures. This will be fully rolled-out by June 2018, and the gradual introduction is in line with advice received from PWC in an independent analysis of the strategy."
 
The strategy covers funding of $330 million a year out of the ministry's total of $600 million for non-government organisations (NGOs).

The strategy, the Cabinet paper supporting it and the PricewaterhouseCoopers report are available on the Community Investment website.
