In the lead up to the 2015 Budget, organisations and networks working with children and their families are calling for real and effective action to reduce child poverty. UNICEF NZ Child Rights Advocacy Manager Deborah Morris Travers told TVNZ

“We need to as a nation focus on the fact this is about the wellbeing of our youngest citizens – when they do well we all do well.”
