CPAG Healthy Homes campaign gets media attention

The Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG)’s 2015 campaign, Healthy and Affordable Homescalling on the government urgently to improve quality of and access to rental accommodation for families – has already received a groundswell of public support and strong media coverage. Alongside the harrowing story of Te Ao Marama Wensor and her son’s serious chronic lung issues as a result of living in a mouldy home, it was the lead story on many news bulletins, including print, radio and TV, and even prompted discussion in parliament.

The key now is to keep the momentum up, giving voice to children in need, and to their families – and the main upcoming event for that is the Hikoi for Homes.
