Ko Te Puni Kōkiri (Ministry of Māori Development) te kaitohutohu matua mō te karauna i runga i ngā kaupapa whanaungatanga i waenga i te Māori me te Karauna. Ka ārahi hoki mātou i te hanga kaupapa here tūmatanui mā te tuku tohutohu ki te Kāwanatanga mō ngā kaupapa here e pā ana ki te oranga tinana Māori me te whanaketanga. Ko te whakamārama mō Te Puni Kōkiri, he puni e kōkiri tahi ana. I runga anō i taua ingoa, ko tā mātou e ngana nei kia whītikihia ngā pūkenga ā-ohu nei o te Māori kia hangaia ai he Aotearoa kaha ake.

Te Puni Kōkiri (Ministry of Māori Development) is the Crown’s principal adviser on Crown-Māori relationships. We also guide Māori public policy by advising Government on policy affecting Māori wellbeing and development. Te Puni Kōkiri means a group moving forward together. As the name implies, we seek to harness the collective talents of Māori to produce a stronger New Zealand.


Minsitry of Social Development

Our Ministry is all about helping to build successful individuals, and in turn building strong, healthy families and communities.

It’s a big job - we’re tackling some of the big issues in society, like family violence and youth offending.

We’re working towards this through providing:

- care and protection of vulnerable children and young people
- employment, income support and superannuation services
- funding to community service providers
- social policy and advice to government
- student allowances and loans.

Our work touches the lives of more than one million New Zealanders. In 2010 – 2011 we:

- provided services and assistance to more than 1.1 million New Zealanders and 110,000 New Zealand families.
- took around 255,000 calls - more than 13 million calls a year
- have 44 Child, Youth and Family sites, 15 office sub locations, and 80 Family Homes
- have 570,711 SuperGold Card holders, 1,338 SuperGold Card partners representing 5,625 business outlets
- processed 240,049 Student Loan applications and 143,464 Student Allowance applications.

This is not work we do alone.  We work closely with other government agencies, non-government organisations, advisory and industry groups, and communities and iwi.  Together we aim to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of New Zealanders.
