From Ideas, 10:06 am on 15 July 2012

Child poverty is back in the headlines this week with 80 organisations banding together to call on the Government to make the well-being of children its top priority. Jeremy Rose visits Seaview's Kokiri Marae to talk to its manager of health and social services Teresa Olsen. Three employees of Wesley Community Action in Cannons Creek tell Jeremy about the realities of children growing up poor in Porirua; Chris Whitta talks to Child Poverty Action Group's Mike O'Brien.
