Working Towards a Just and Compassionate Society





Every day of the week the members of NZCCSS - the Anglican Care Network, Baptist Churches of Aotearoa New Zealand, Catholic Social Services, Presbyterian Support NZ, the Methodist Church and the Salvation Army - provide essential services through collectively serving and working in communities throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. In it's work NZCCSS is supported by member churches and their leaders.

NZCCSS recognizes its obligations as partners to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  Through its collective activity NZCCSS does its best to put justice and compassion into action.

A small team of policy advisors and researchers make up the Secretariat of NZCCSS, and the Secretariat supports the Council in working for justice and compassion at policy, parish and social service levels in Aotearoa New Zealand.  Work for justice and compassion is based on real work that is carried out by member agencies. Knowledge and understanding for this work is drawn from on-the-ground experiences in communities and services of members to inform  policy change and development at government and government department levels.

To provide you with information about social justice issues in Aotearoa New Zealand Council publishes Policy Watch, The Vulnerability Report and Kete Kupu. These and other materials can be accessed through the Publications Library of this website.
