Prime Minister Bill English:
. . . The Government isn’t the answer to everything, most of our answers are in our own families and communities. Sometimes Government gets in the way of that. This is a Government that will be focussed on understanding, at a very individual level, what is going to work with people and then supporting them to achieve it. . .
Focussing on understanding and then supporting people sounds simple.
It won’t be easy and it might be expensive.
But this social investment approach which the new PM led as Finance Minister, is showing that more money spent well now saves more money later and changes lives for the better.
