All About Me plan

The All About Me plan addresses the needs identified in the Tuituia assessment and holds important information about each tamaiti or rangatahi in our care. This policy defines when the plan is needed and how we must develop, maintain and use it.

Who this policy applies to

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.

Policy: Participation of tamariki

See and engage tamariki

Involving others in the development of the All About Me plan

We must take into account the views of:

  • family/whānau
  • 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.

Policy: Assessment

See and engage whānau, wider family, caregivers and when appropriate victims of offending by tamariki

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.
