Submission to the NZ Productivity Commission June 2015

From: Good Cents Porirua – Great Start Taita  – Tiakina ō Tātou Tamariki – Inspiring Communities  

Firstly we would commend you for the scope and depth of your findings and inquiry.  Your report is well written and highlights both a broad range of longstanding systemic issues and potential pathways forward for further consideration and debate.  There are no easy answers or quick fixes.  We also reassert that purchasing/commissioning ‘services’ are only part of the change mix required to improve the wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
