This report reflects the voices of people most directly affected by the New Zealand welfare system. Between 18 and 31 October 2018, 267 people contributed their perspectives, insights, and experiences of the welfare system through a 17-question online survey hosted by ActionStation. The report was submitted to the Welfare Expert Advisory Group on Friday November 9, with the hope to inform the recommendations the group will make to the Government in February 2019.

The findings of ActionStation’s Welfare for Wellbeing report included an overwhelming trend of people having negative experiences with Work and Income and a desperate lack of income to afford basic needs:
