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.

Update made to this policy

We have updated the information about what transition caregivers can charge.
Living arrangement costs that rangatahi are entitled to have subsidised

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.
