Data-driven perspective report 2020/21

We hope this paper will offer new insights that will help us collectively create a more equitable, thriving society for our tamariki and rangatahi. To develop this paper, the Vodafone Foundation, in partnership with The Centre for Social Impact, Nicholsons Consulting and Deloitte, conducted an extensive literature review, engaged with community practitioners around Aotearoa and brought together a broad collection of government datasets that paint a picture of young people’s lives around the country. This process has provided us with a clear picture of what is happening now – how advantage and disadvantage is being experienced by tamariki and rangatahi people in different regions. It has also revealed the protective factors that are required for rangatahi to live great lives.

We don’t need to fix our young people. We need to fix the systems that view them through a deficit lens – systems which consistently exclude them from opportunities.

This paper aims to highlight the findings of our work to date and make recommendations that will help us move collectively towards a brighter Aotearoa. Our intention is not to prescribe actions – no one set of actions will get us to the changes we need. Instead, our goal is to influence a multitude of small and large decisions made by government, funders and community members each day; decisions that can collectively lead us to a more equitable and aspirational future.

We urge you to read the paper and reflect on the findings, to engage your sense of urgency, and to consider your role in creating the conditions for change.
