We advocate on behalf of those most in need in our communities.

The main obstacles to all New Zealanders living fulfilled lives are poverty, sub-standard housing and a lack of social inclusion. Our policy work of the secretariat is informed by the ‘from the coalface’ feedback we get from the social services of our member churches.

We tell the stories of the hardship faced by many low-income families & their housing needs. We work for policies that will reduce poverty & inequality and ensure all people have access good quality affordable housing.
