In 2018 Auckland Council’s The Southern Initiative (TSI) and the Social Wellbeing Agency (SWA) joined forces to develop new ways of working to support improved social wellbeing and better social sector decision making and practice. In particular, the partnership wanted to understand what South Auckland whānau experienced around the birth of a child. The project was called Having a Baby in South Auckland (The Project).
The case study ‘Towards better social sector decision making and practice: a social wellbeing approach' more fully describes the social wellbeing approach applied in this project, the methodology and tools developed, and the insights gained. The purpose of this resource is to provide an overview of how the principles and guidance in the Data Protection and Use Policy (DPUP) were reflected in the way that the project team worked together and created value from data. It's a good example of putting the Sharing Value Guideline into practice.
