Your voice, your data, your say

Between May and September 2018 we ran an engagement process to find out what New Zealander’s think about the Government’s approach to wellbeing, and the protection and use of data in the social sector.

The Government wants to develop a new way of working with communities to support New Zealanders to live the lives they aspire to, and build people’s wellbeing.

Between May and September 2018 we met and listened to New Zealanders to find out what they think about social wellbeing and the protection and use of data. Over 1,000 people attended one of the 83 hui we held in 27 locations across New Zealand.

What people told us will inform the Government’s approach to building wellbeing. It will also inform a draft Data Protection and Use Policy.
