Contribute to the Supporting Families NZ Submission:
Supporting Families NZ is preparing a submission on behalf of families and whanau in NZ. SF Nelson intends to contribute to this submission and we will be facilitating family whanau focus groups over the next few weeks to hear family whanau views to include in the submission. The more ways the Inquiry team can hear the family whanau voice the better.
