Current projects

Our aim is to increase the use of evidence in the social sector so that better decisions can be made – about funding, policies or services – to improve the lives of families, whānau and communities in New Zealand.

The use of evidence can change people’s lives.  We are working on the following projects because they will provide useful evidence for people working in the social sector to change the lives of New Zealanders.
