With welfare reform a key focus for the current Government, there is a unique opportunity for concerned parties to influence the scope and breadth of changes needed. The purpose of the Summit is to impact the welfare reform agenda by increasing awareness and knowledge, especially among policy makers, about the chronic problems and the developments that will improve the welfare system so that it works much better for families and children. 
We look forward to hearing from our speakers who together will provide a joint perspective on what an effective welfare system should look like to meet our modern day needs, and ensure all children in Aotearoa New Zealand grow up thriving. 
Our summit speakers include:

Honorary Associate Professor Susan St John
Dr Jess Berentson-Shaw
Dr Michael Fletcher
Dr Hirini Kaa
David Hanna
Dr Bill Rosenberg
Alan Johnson
Efeso Collins
Sam Orchard
Dr Amanda D'Souza
Associate Professor Mike O'Brien 

***A livestream of the event will be available from 2pm on the day at the Daily Blog. Visit our CPAG FB page for more details on the day.***
