What we're delivering for New Zealanders
We are committed to tackling the long-term challenges facing New Zealanders. We’re fixing problems that have accumulated over many years and were ignored by the last government.
Under Labour, unemployment is down and wages are up.
We’ve lifted tens of thousands of children out of poverty, we’ve put the free back into free education, and we’ve made the largest ever investment in mental health care.
Our responsible economic management has delivered a healthy surplus and our Budget investments will help New Zealand stay ahead of global economic headwinds.
We are taking a balanced approach, focusing first on the things that really matter to New Zealanders like making sure our kids aren’t growing up in cars, fixing our rotting hospitals and cleaning up our rivers.
Our plan - to roll out free mental health, addiction and wellbeing support in every community over time - is transformative – and it’s what New Zealanders called on the Government to deliver.
Our plan will deliver for everyone – including the people of Wairarapa.
We’re working hard to make Wairarapa better than ever.

Have you heard about Labour's Community Action Network?
Labour's Community Action Network is a grassroots movement made up of local communities working together to help build election-ready volunteer teams across New Zealand.
We know that one of the most effective ways to get people to vote Labour is by locals talking to locals and sharing their personal stories. That’s what the Community Action Network is about.
But to get our grassroots teams ready for 2020, we need to recruit and train thousands of volunteers.
Will you be one of them?
