A tool to understand Wellington City Council’s role in supporting the social wellbeing of its communities

Our vision for social wellbeing is “An inclusive, liveable and resilient city where people and communities can learn, are connected, well housed, safe and healthy”. Wellington is a people-centred city. As such, we want all individuals, whānau and communities to have opportunities to connect, participate and thrive.

We prepared a framework for understanding the role that the Council can take in improving social wellbeing for Wellingtonians. It’s just one of a number of plans and strategies which will help us to deliver on our 2040 vision for Wellington.

The framework for Wellington aims to:

  • Acknowledge that there are many groups that make up Wellington city
  • Explore key issues that are impacting the social wellbeing of our people
  • Outline the different roles that the Council can take to improve social wellbeing
  • Consider evidence and measurable impacts

What’s happened with this consultation

The draft framework was open for consultation from 6 April to 10 May, and 37 submissions were received.

The Council considered submissions and adopted the Social Wellbeing Framework for Wellington in August 2021.
