I hope that you can join me on Thursday 26 August 7pm at Corban Estate
Arts Centre, Opanuku Studio, 426 Great North Rd, Henderson, to talk
about how we better care for New Zealand's families and children. I
would love to hear your views and stories and share with you our
solutions for what is one of the most serious social and economic issues
this country faces.
Every child deserves a fair go, no matter what their parents earn or
where they live. We know that the gap between the haves and the have
nots is widening in New Zealand. We also know that the wider the gap the
more our children are hurt - all children from all families. Most social
problems are worse in countries with high inequality. Homelessness,
energy and food insecurity, and poverty affect us all. You may well see
that in your work and in your communities in Waitakere.
The problem is serious but the solutions are there. We can start to
close that gap if we prioritise our efforts and resources. Its these
solutions I would like to talk about with you.
So, it would be great to see you on the 26th.
If you have any questions about the meeting, feel free to contact Aaryn
or Kate who are included in this email, or phone 04 817 6796.
