The Crown Response Unit coordinates the Government’s response to the Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry(external link).
Our motto is: Listening, learning, changing/ Mā Whakarongo me Ako ka huri te tai. This captures the spirit the Government brings to its work with the Royal Commission, and to what it does in response to the Royal Commission’s recommendations.
Our logo conveys three essential elements of the Crown’s response to the Royal Commission.
Mā Whakarongo me Ako ka huri te tai is a whakatauāki (proverb) meaning “listen and learn to create change”.
Crown Response to the Abuse in Care Inquiry is our organisational title – it has been chosen to clearly differentiate us from the Abuse in Care Inquiry itself.
The Crown crest is a symbol of the whole of Crown response to the Abuse in Care Inquiry.
