PSN Lecture Series 5 April to 20 July 2018

We’ve had a very interesting and challenging 10 weeks, where we’ve had 9 speakers talking about how we can improve outcomes for our children, our tamariki in New Zealand which is a key focus for us through our range of services which include Family Works, Lifeline, Shine and Enliven. Building capability of children and their whanau is at the heart of what we do here at Presbyterian Support Northern.

Through these lecture series, we’ve been honoured to be able to show some leadership outside of government to help build capability at those broader sections of community, sectors and system.

We would like to thank our guest speakers from a varied background of international and New Zealand experience across government and academia sharing their knowledge, experience and time.
