Decentralising Welfare - Te Mana Motuhake O Tūhoe

The Ministry of Social Development committed to work with Tūhoe as part of their Treaty settlement, and in particular to explore whether there were opportunities to decentralise any aspects of the government’s responsibility for providing welfare support.

Sapere research was engaged to provide the Ministry and Tūhoe with a report on possible options. The report provides an overview of what the full spectrum of decentralisation could hypothetically look like - if it was applied in the Crown-Tūhoe context - and suggests the work might be taken forward.
