When this policy applies
All tamariki and rangatahi in care or custody must have an All About Me plan.
Involving te tamaiti in the development of the All About Me plan
Tamariki and rangatahi must be actively involved in developing and reviewing their plan. We must take into account their views, aspirations, and any decisions they have made, and incorporate these wherever possible.
Tamariki and rangatahi must be kept up to date on the progress of their plan.
Involving others in the development of the All About Me plan
We must take into account the views of:
- the people in their hapū, iwi or family group and others who are considered important to or for te tamaiti or rangatahi as identified in the Tuituia assessment
- current caregivers
- caregivers who will care for te tamaiti or rangatahi (if known)
- people who are expected to have a role in the plan
- others who have important relationships or roles with te tamaiti, as appropriate.
Tamariki All About Me version of the plan
We must ensure tamariki or rangatahi are given the Tamariki All About Me version of their plan, in a form that is suitable for their age, development, language and any disabilities they may have, and check that they have a safe place to keep the plan.
We should where possible involve te tamaiti in developing the look and feel of their version to help them understand its content.
