Welcome to Superu's website
Superu was a government agency that focused on what works to improve the lives of families and whānau.
We operated between 2004 and 2018 and closed on 30 June 2018 under the Families Commission Act Repeal Act.
We closed on Friday 29 June 2018. This decision was made by Cabinet in 2017 and formalised by the Families Commission Act Repeal Act in 2018. Many of our existing work programmes have gone to other government agencies. Find out where they've gone and who to contact. All our research is still available on The Hub.
Get stuck into evaluation with our user-friendly, step-by-step guide to help your organisations become more evaluation focussed. This tool also considers Māori and Pacific perspectives.
Our ‘At a Glance’ series uses infographics to illustrate research findings or key information about a priority topic. These publications are a quick, easy introduction to an issue.
Our 'What works' series draws on international and local research to identify what works - or doesn't work - to address an issue. And now, all these reports are available in one place.
