Inquiry into the determinants of wellbeing for tamariki Māori.
A report, issued in December 2013 by the Māori Affairs Committee, concludes that poverty is a major barrier to the wellbeing of tamariki Māori. The authors call on all New Zealanders to support the work being done to improve the wellbeing of our tamariki, and New Zealand as a whole. They encourage a collaborative approach between agencies and organisations to support the Whānau Ora – and similar – approach to working with Māori whānau. They unambiguously reject a silo mentality.
