The J R McKenzie Trust and the Office of the Children’s Commissioner invited a range of stakeholders from the children’s sector, government, philanthropic sector, service providers, community groups and those with lived experiences to a one-day hui in Wellington, focused on reducing child poverty and improving child well-being.

The day was managed and curated by Inspiring Communities. The day aimed to:

  • strengthen relationships and encourage people to work together to identify solutions and opportunities to overcome what causes and perpetuates child poverty
  • create an environment to better understand a range of experiences and perspectives of child poverty and child wellbeing, and
  • inform work on child poverty reduction and the development of the Child Wellbeing Strategy, and encourage participants to engage in the consultation.
