Transition to adulthood — Entitlement to remain or return to live with a caregiver

This policy sets out our obligations to eligible rangatahi and caregivers when rangatahi wish to remain with, or return to live with, a caregiver.

Visits by caregiver social worker

The caregiver social worker must visit the caregiver once a week for the first four weeks of a living arrangement, and then at a minimum of every eight weeks thereafter. This does not apply when rangatahi remains living with the same caregiver.
