Kiwis are fair minded and know that if you play by the rules, you have a go and you pay your taxes then you should reap the rewards. For those who might not be so lucky, or for those who need our help, we’ve got a safety net which will help them out. National believes support should be a hand-up and not a hand-out.

We want people to be in the driver’s seat of their own lives. This means ensuring there’s the opportunity for people to get ahead under their own steam while ensuring there’s a safety net which deals directly with the issues facing some of New Zealand’s most vulnerable people. National will make sure New Zealand is the best place to raise your kids and to grow old, and that starts with a government that faces up to some of the complex challenges we are facing. Families are at the heart of everything we do.
