We believe that every child has the right to have a safe, happy and fulfilled childhood.

Our New Zealand programme currently focuses on advocating to Government to improve policies to make life better for all children.

Some of the issues we have been involved in recently include child poverty reduction, preventable child deaths, stretched health services, mental health, housing, and underfunded education, particularly for children with disabilities.

 Our work is based around the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCROC) and aims to ensure New Zealand is upholding children’s rights and that every child can access to quality education and is protected from poverty, abuse, and violence.

Where we can, we offer ways for New Zealanders to have their say on issues affecting children and youth.
