Beyond Social Investment
We warmly invite you to attend the CPAG, RPRC and CARE Annual Summit on 8th September in Auckland.
'Social Investment' is a buzzword that is guiding the current National Government’s social policy decisions. What does it mean? What are the implications of increased 'target efficiency'?
Speakers at the 2017 summit Beyond Social Investment will examine and critique this view of welfare provision, and discuss what a social welfare system that genuinely put “the well-being of children at the centre” would look like.
What changes to policies and budgets would make the difference required for all children to thrive?
Date: 8 September 2017
Time: 9.30am-4.30pm Followed by networking and refreshments
Venue: The University of Auckland Business School Lecture Theatre OGGB3, Level 0, Owen G Glenn Building,12 Grafton Road, Auckland
