Your voice, your data, your say

The SIA is leading a work programme to inform the development of the government's approach to investing for social wellbeing and a policy for the safe and ethical use of data in the social sector, called the Data Protection and Use Policy.

Between late May and early September we met and listened to New Zealanders to find out what they think about these two topics. We did this through nearly 100 hui, and we also ran two online surveys.

We will publish regular updates as we move through different stages of the programme and as we work through the information we gathered from the hui and surveys.
