Ministry of Social Development

The Ministry of Social Development is about helping to build successful individuals, and in turn building strong, healthy families and communities. MSD work closely with other government agencies, non-government organisations, advisory and industry groups, and communities and iwi. MSD tackle some big issues like family violence and youth offending, and work through this by providing care and protection of vulnerable children and young people, employment, income support and superannuation services, funding to community service providers, social policy and advice to government, student allowances and loans, and social housing assessments.
