Mike Coleman – on Every Child Counts project team.
Every Child Counts is a new coalition of organisations and concerned citizens who are campaigning to encourage all political parties to put children at the centre of their policies. Its key policy is that children and families must be central to policy development and implementation if New Zealand is to thrive socially and economically. Placing children and families as the centre of policy will lead to: fewer children growing up in poverty, fewer children growing up experiencing violence and public policy being more child and family centred.
It will also be an opportunity to meet Luci Highfield – the Green Party candidate in the Rongotai electorate for the coming general election. Luci will be chairing this meeting.
