Whanau Ora: Turia to head welfare shake-up - National - NZ Herald News

Whanau Ora: Turia to head welfare shake-up - National - NZ Herald News
We need more details about this programme, but I cautiously support it. It is all about helping people in a culturally appropriate way, rather than assuming that the models we use in the MSD delivery of social services are still useful. But we still need to address some bigger issues, such as the growing divide in haves and have-nots. I am also unsure whether passing laws makes people behave better, and we need to re think the Sensible Sentencing approach to crime and punishment which the government seems to be adopting.
