The third annual Child Poverty Report was released today, alongside Budget 2021. It describes what progress has been made in reducing poverty and what the Government is doing through Budget 2021 to reduce child poverty.
Today's Child and Youth Wellbeing e-newsletter includes updates on the child poverty and wellbeing indicators and the launch of the Youth Plan, along with a collection of inspiring community-led initiatives and activities.
The Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy framework remains a critical lens for the Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We've pulled together an overview of recent investments that support child wellbeing and poverty reduction, including immediate actions taken to respond to COVID-19, as well as Budget 2020 initiatives, and those included in the dedicated COVID Relief and Recovery Fund (CRRF).
The Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy was launched on 29 August 2019, at Kaitao school in Rotorua. The Strategy sets out a shared understanding of what’s important for child and youth wellbeing, what government is doing, and how others can help.
