WHĀNAU RANGATIRATANGA Poster Title

 

We are the Social Policy Evaluation and Research Unit or, Superu for short.

Our purpose is to increase the use of evidence by people across the social sector so that they can make better decisions and to improve the lives of New Zealanders, New Zealand’s communities, families and whānau.

The issues faced by families and whānau are complex. They cannot be addressed by any one agency or service provider. This means that the social sector needs to know the ‘big picture’ of what works for families and whānau.

Through Superu’s Responsiveness to Māori strategy – Hīkoi Ngātahi, the unique relationship to Tāngata Whenua as a Treaty partner is recognised. Superu publishes an annual Status report on the wellbeing of families and whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand.

 

Whānau Rangatiratanga Conceptual Framework

This conceptual Te Ao Māori framework guides our measurement approach and places whānau at the centre of wellbeing.

Whanau Rangatiratanga Principles

 

Whānau Rangatiratanga Conceptual Framework

This framework identifies the 20 Māori-specific domains that can be measured. The capability measures that are relevant and important to Whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori wellbeing are from a strengths-based approach.
