My name is Veronica King, I am 59 years old, have 6 adult children and 21 beautiful grandchildren, and am of Maori and Irish descent.

I parented for 23 years as a single mother during which time I obtained a degree in applied social science, completed papers in business organization and management, community social services, child protection matters, facilitated various forums within faith-based and secular sectors encouraging community-led and local government engagement and development.

As a mother, grandmother and Christian believer I hold to the principle that ‘children are a heritage from the Lord, a fruitful blessing and are a nation’s richest treasure’.

Every child and young person deserves to live and grow in an environment that fashions and develops their hopes, dreams, and their learnings in a healthy and safe way with unconditional love.
