LEFT FURTHER BEHIND      

How policies fail the poorest children in New Zealand


Edited by M. Claire Dale, Michael O'Brien & Susan St John

This report traverses a range of issues affecting our children including: incomes, health, housing, education, parental support, social hazards and the lack of job opportunities for young people; and is built around the idea of putting children at the centre of policy decisions.  None of these issues can be tackled in isolation - a concerted and coordinated approach to child poverty and improving the well-being of and opportunities for all children is required.  Without such an approach, children will suffer unnecessarily and New Zealand will be poorer economically, socially and culturally.  ALL children irrespective of the status and position of their parent/carer are entitled to the best possible support from their parents and all New Zealand society.
