An increase in access to opportunities for all Aucklanders can have positive benefits in:
- health and life expectancy
- trust and
- educational performance
- the reduction of crime
- cultural and civic participation.
To improve health and wellbeing, we must address inequity, exclusion and disadvantage experienced by individuals,
whānau and communities.
This includes ensuring that children and young people are given the opportunity to reach their potential so that they do not experience disadvantage as adults.
We must also address
structural discrimination by encouraging a more diverse range of people in positions of decision-making and influence.
Socio-economic disparity, low
social mobility and entrenched inequalities exist across Auckland, often in distinct geographic patterns.
