In this section
We use the intake decision response tool (DRT) to decide on the appropriate report of concern response pathway when we receive information or concerns for tamariki, including those in care.
Use these prompts to gather and assess as much information as possible from the person reporting the concerns about te tamaiti.
When we determine a report of concern requires a statutory response, we must decide the timeframe to complete the safety and risk screen.
We use contact records, casenotes, or reports of concern to record decision responses. For tamariki in care, we also talk directly with the allocated social worker or their supervisor.
