The executive director of the New Zealand Māori Council wants to see more of the Government’s $320 million package to counter family and sexual violence being spent on building up Māori social service organisations.

Matthew Tukaki says Māori are dealing with the consequences of 60 years of state intervention in which something like 70 percent of children placed in care have been Māori .

He says the answer is for greater investment in iwi and Māori agencies to pick up where state agencies have failed.

"They need money to fund wages which are resources on the ground. Funding tens of millions of dollars into an awareness campaign, that will either be driven by MSD or the Heath Promotion Agency or what have you, that's all very well but the only ones who will win from that are the advertising agencies. What our people need is greater investment into physical resources," Mr Tukaki says.

The New Zealand Māori Council has launched a new campaign focusing on what whānau need to do to protect their children.
