Who do we want to hear from? - wai tātou e hiahia ana ki te whakarongo?

Anyone can contribute their voice to the kōrero about what needs to be in the National Strategy and Action Plans. The Government is making a special effort to hear from many communities and those affected by violence.

The information you provide will be analysed and themed.

Please be aware that all submissions are subject to the Official Information Act. All names and any identifying information would be withheld under section 9(2)(a).
