I believe that ALL those responsible for making policies for government agencies that serve people in MSD, Housing etc should get out of the office, get in their with local community providers that carry out these contracts and work alongside their teams for at least a month.
The people who those agencies serve need to be a part of the policy team.
Those in office writing policies and rules on what is, what can and can't be done probably aren't in the low to medium socioeconomic population so would have absolutely NO CLUE to how their decisions would affect the vulnerable in society.
Reality checks required.
Why the contribution is important
It is important as governance to ACTUALLY get in there with the people and do the mahi or see the mahi thats going on in our local and rural communities. See the struggle from the peoples eyes.
And use their power to do something about it.
