Social sector

The social sector supports all New Zealanders by investing in their education, health and wellbeing.

Who is the social sector?

The social sector includes government agencies, community partners, service providers, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), charities, Crown Agencies, local government, district health boards ... the list continues.

An integral part of New Zealand society, the social sector supports all New Zealanders by investing in their education, health and wellbeing so they can live fulfilling and productive lives. But some people need more support to enhance their quality of life.

The social sector also invests in communities so they can enable people to thrive and help them when they need support.
