The Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.


Our vision is for New Zealand to be the best place in the world to be a child or young person. While most New Zealand children and young people are doing well, the distressing reality is that many are not experiencing anything close to a good life. Learn more about the Strategy that is setting the direction for all of government policy and action for child and youth wellbeing and how it focuses on those experiencing poverty and those with greater needs.


Donna Caddie, Principal Analyst, Child Wellbeing Unit, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, has worked in the policy, strategy and strategic planning space in New Zealand and British Columbia since 2003. She is passionate about understanding how better policy can prepare us for global pressures such as climate change, changing population, food security, technological and energy shifts and result in better outcomes for people, our environment and economy.
