Many of the submissions on the Green Paper for Vulnerable Children are now available online – thanks to advice from the Council of Social Services (Dunedin).
“Thousands of people took part in the Green Paper consultation through 68 public meetings from Kaitaia to Invercargill and by making submissions via mail, email, online surveys, and even on Facebook.
“This process resulted in almost 10,000 submissions made by non-government organisations, community groups and members of the public including over 2,000 children.
“All Green Paper submissions were read, analysed and collated as officials and experts across government agencies developed the White Paper which is to be released this October.”
The White Paper was due to have been released this month, before it was initially delayed until September, and now October.
The Green Paper summary of submissions, and the 600 full submissions that have been publicly released, can be accessed from the Government’s Green Paper website.
