Choices for living, caring and working: A ten-year plan to improve the caring and employment choices available to parents and carers

This document has two objectives:

to explain the government’s vision for enhancing choices for parents and carers; and

to outline the Choices Plan of Action to deliver this vision.

International research shows that a range of government agencies and partners need to work together to enhance the choices of parents and carers. The agencies involved in developing the Choices Plan of Action include the Department of Labour, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Ministry of Maori Affairs, the Treasury, Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs, and Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

The Choices Plan of Action will be implemented in consultation with workplace leaders and community groups to ensure that it makes a real positive difference to the way New Zealanders provide for and care for their families and loved ones over the next decade and beyond.
