Chief Social Worker Paul Nixon
Paul Nixon has been Child, Youth and Family's chief social worker for about 2.5 years. He has come from Britain, where he had an extensive background in care and protection. In Aotearoa, he aims to tackle a number of problems frontline social workers are facing in their day to day jobs. Another major focus is how the agency deals with whānau Māori. Mani Dunlop spoke to him about CYF's image with the public and the families it works with.
