Children's Commissioner's priorities
1 July 2019
The Office of the Children’s Commissioner is focused on ensuring Aotearoa New Zealand is a place where all children can thrive. As Children’s Commissioner, I am independent from the Government. I have a broad role under the law to advocate for the interests, rights and wellbeing of children and monitor the services provided under the Children, Young Persons, and their Families Act.
I have set four top priorities for 1 July 2019 - 30 June 2020:
- Improved systems, services and supports for mokopuna Māori and their whānau
- Enhanced child wellbeing
- Encourage Oranga Tamariki in its transformation of the care and protection and youth justice systems
- Access to education for all
