This strategy aims to prioritise the wellbeing of both the people who come into the New Zealand prison system and their whānau (extended family). Through this new approach, and working with Māori and all key stakeholders, the Government aims to improve wellbeing outcomes of prisoners and reduce the number of Māori in prison.
Six key strategies are addressed:
1) Partnership and leadership
2) Humanising and healing
4) Incorporating a Te Ao Maori worldview
6) Foundations for participation
