Growing Up in New Zealand
, in conjunction with the University of Auckland and Families Commission invites you to attend a seminar to launch the first report in our new ‘Vulnerability and Resilience’ series,

Growing Up in New Zealand - Vulnerability Report 1: Exploring the definition of vulnerability for children in their first 1000 days.

Defining vulnerability in early life has become a policy focus in New Zealand as part of the drive to ensure that every child born thrives, achieves and belongs. Defining the factors that contribute to early life vulnerability is complex - risk factors often overlap and may accumulate or change over time.

Using the rich longitudinal data collected from the Growing Up in New Zealand cohort over the first 1,000 days of their lives ‘Exploring the definition of vulnerability’ investigates what vulnerability means in the context of the current New Zealand pre-school population and our contemporary environment.

This first report in Growing Up in New Zealand’s ‘Vulnerability and Resilience’ series explores likely risk factors of early life vulnerability, how they change over time, and shows how exposure to these factors impacts on children’s health and wellbeing during the first two years of development.
