We plan the assessment and then gather and analyse information, which we summarise using the Tuituia assessment report.
Assessment is an ongoing process of building understanding to inform whānau or family and professional decision-making. Following a report of concern we build understanding across 3 phases, as needed – initial, core and full assessment.
We use the Tuituia assessment framework to understand the oranga needs and challenges faced by tamariki and rangatahi in the care or custody of the Oranga Tamariki chief executive, along with their strengths.
Good planning should follow the SMART principles: specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timeframed.
The All About Me plan is designed to enable us to support and respond to the needs of tamariki and rangatahi in the custody or care of the chief executive in line with the National Care Standards.
The Tamariki All About Me Plan describes how the needs of tamariki and rangatahi in care will be supported, as set out in the All About Me Plan, in a form appropriate to te tamaiti or rangatahi.
We work collaboratively with professionals and whānau or family to secure the safety of tamariki with a suspected non-accidental injury.
