The Apanui Justice Programme, has been co-designed by the Crown and Te Whānau a Apanui, an iwi in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. The Programme seeks to redesign how criminal justice services are delivered for Te Whānau a Apanui to improve outcomes for whānau. The Programme is co-designed, co-produced and co-owned in partnership by Te Whānau a Apanui and the Crown.
The High Impact Innovation Programme (HIIP) is based at Ara Poutama Aotearoa, working across the Justice Sector to improve justice sector outcomes and safely reduce New Zealand’s prison population. The Crown Programme Lead will be based in HIIP, located at Ara Poutama Aotearoa, working directly with the Te Whānau a Apanui Programme lead based at Te Rūnanga o Te Whānau in Te Kaha. The Apanui Justice Programme aligns closely with a number of Agency strategies. Additionally, the Programme supports the delivery of the Justice Sector Leadership Board’s key sector priorities of ‘Strengthening the Māori-Crown Relationship’, and ‘Transformation of the Criminal Justice System’.
