Findings of engagement survey on social wellbeing and protection and use of data

Wednesday, December 5, 2018   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: Report, social, wellbeing, data, consultation

Tēnā koe. The Social Investment Agency (SIA) hosted 83 hui in 27 locations across New Zealand between May and September 2018 to hear what people had to say about the Government’s approach to investing for social wellbeing, and how the social sector uses data.

District Health Boards were amongst the group of engagement participants who told the SIA that government needs to work more closely with providers, and to empower community development of locally-led solutions.

They also heard there is a need for greater flexibility in contracts, longer-term and less competitive funding arrangements, and more funding to better reflect the full costs of providing services. You want to see a ‘two-way flow’ of information between government and service providers, and you want government agencies to involve you in deciding what data and analysis is useful, and to share data, research and insights.

The SIA were listening carefully when you told them you want a “whole new way of HOW”.

The Social Investment Agency thanks those of you who contributed in our engagement process - thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences.

Your feedback is incorporated within what was heard from a range of regional service providers. The detailed findings have been published in a report titled: What you told us - findings from the ‘Your voice, your data your say’ engagement on social wellbeing and the protection and use of data’.

The full report is available to read and download online {PDF}.

A ‘quick guide’ to the engagement findings has also been produced.

Email the Social Investment Agency with your postal address if if you’d prefer to be sent a hard copy of the full report (your_say[at]

What next from the SIA engagement

The report points to a significant opportunity the Government shares with the social sector, to do what works for better lives for all New Zealanders. We’re sharing the report publicly because it’s important more New Zealanders know what people think about Government’s approach to investing for social wellbeing, and how the social sector uses data.

The SIA have published the findings report before Cabinet considers the findings of the engagement, and ahead of Government considering its approach to investing for wellbeing.

Findings of the engagement on the protection and use of data provide a sound base for us to work from. Right now SIA are collaborating with social sector representatives to develop a number of possible ‘rules and tools’ that might form part of the Data Protection and Use Policy. They are working towards presenting the policy to Cabinet in early 2019, followed by public consultation in the second quarter of 2019.

How the SIA considered and summarised what was heard

The SIA had to authentically listen and learn from what you told us to develop genuine findings. This required a consistent, impartial method of analysis.

You can learn about the method used in the SIA our report titled: From listening to learning.

This report is available to read and download online [PDF].
