Building Stronger Communities


If we give New Zealanders the best start we possibly can, this will set them up for the rest of their lives.

Whether that’s through their 1000 days, and making sure New Zealand babies receive the care they need and deserve.

And through ensuring all New Zealand children receive a world-class education, because education is the greatest investment in our future.

National believes in a hand up not a handout system, we want all New Zealanders to have the security a job provides, and not languish on a benefit.

We want a health service that is modern, high-quality, evidence-based and available to all regardless of who you are or where you live.

Too often we hear stories of people who have missed out on care based on their location, we want to fix that.

We will ensure New Zealand is a safe place to live, work and raise a family.

We have a simple policy, victims should get justice and criminals should be held accountable for the harm they cause, while also being rehabilitated into contributing members of our society.

National knows our economy is first and foremost about people and their communities.

We will invest in strengthening our community connections and social fabric. We will support communities to build new enterprises and create local jobs.
