The success of the Welfare Working Group’s recommendations will strongly depend on the quality and breadth of the conversation with a wide range of New Zealanders.

We’re running four phases of activity to engage with communities about how welfare affects them. These are:

  1. Workshops and engagement with key stakeholders (April/May 2010)
  2. Welfare Working Group Forum (9–10 June 2010)
  3. Post-forum engagement (July-October 2010)
  4. Development and delivery of report (December 2010)

We are also seeking submissions from all interested parties.

You can also register your interest to receive updates on the progress of the Welfare Working Group.
