Welcome to Superu's website

Superu is a government agency that focuses on what works to improve the lives of families, children and whānau. They are at the centre of what we do.

We work closely with decision-makers in the social sector – the people who develop, fund, deliver, research and evaluate social policies and programmes – so that they can have the good-quality evidence needed to help solve complex social issues.
