CPAG works to produce evidence about the causes and effects of poverty on children and their families. It looks carefully at how Government policies affect children. CPAG publishes reports, makes submissions, and conducts small-scale research projects to achieve its goals.

CPAG speaks out on behalf of the thousands of children in New Zealand whose meager standard of living compromises their health, education, and well-being.
