New Zealand ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Children (UNCROC) in 1993. This means that New Zealand must regularly report on our progres under UNCROC and our next report is due 5 May 20415.
The Ministry of Social Development has prepared a draft of the Report and now wants to here your views.
For more information, please visit the Ministry of Social Development’s home page at www.msd.govt.nz and click on ‘ UNCROC Public Consultation’ under the ‘What’s New’ section. Here you will find a copy of the draft Report, a summary of the draft Report, and a questionnaire to fill out.
You can contact us via email at UNCROC@msd.govt.nz or you can leave a voice-mail message at 0800 UNCROC (0800 862762)
