Social Bonds Information Release

Issue date: 
Thursday, 6 April 2017
Corporate author: 

Exploring new ways of delivering social services can help the government make effective use of spending on social services. Among the initiatives being investigated are social bonds, which involve providers being paid for the results that they achieve, and the raising of capital from investors. Some examples operating overseas include helping children in care return to their families, or preventing people from returning to prison.

See Social Bonds - New Zealand Pilot on the Ministry of Health website for more information about the pilot.
