About Us and Our Work

Our Ministry is all about helping build a better standard of living for everyone in the Cook Islands.

We provide support through:

  • welfare cash transfers (benefits)
  • funding to improve home accessibility for vulnerable
  • development and implementation of social policy services
  • employment and consumer services
  • beautification of roads to ensure road safety
  • child and family protection services
  • funding for Civil Societies (CSO) and Non-Government Organisations (NGO)

The Ministry works closely with other government agencies, non-government organisations and community groups that are passionate in making a difference in our people’s lives. Our main objective is to ensure that no one is left behind.
