Links

How and when we use links, including links in text, links to downloads, templates and external sites, and links to practice standards.

Linking to external sites

When linking to a page on a website other than the Practice Centre:

  • link to the name of the page the user will go to (or what’s on the page, if the title isn’t helpful)
  • follow the page name with the name of the organisation or website, for example '— Caring Families Aotearoa'.

Example

Allegation support — Caring Families Aotearoa

Linking to other Oranga Tamariki sites

When we link to a page on another Oranga Tamariki website, we:

  • link to the name of the page (or what’s on the page, if the title isn’t helpful)
  • follow the page name with 'Oranga Tamariki website' for our main website or just the name of the other site, such as Te Pae.

Example

Current care allowances — Oranga Tamariki website

Linking to files and downloads

When we add a link to a file to download, the CMS will automatically display information about the file’s format and size so users know what they're clicking on.

When we link to files or downloads in text, we use the title of the document to create the link text.

We don't usually link directly to PDFs or other downloads on external sites — instead, we link to the page on the external site that the download is linked from. However, if the page on the external site has more than 1 download link or the link is low on the page, we can link directly to the PDF or other download, as long as we include the file type and size in the link text.

Example

Professional supervision — record (DOCX 153 KB)

Allegation support for caregivers information sheet — Caring Families Aotearoa (PDF 8.5 MB)

Linking to practice standards

We can list relevant practice standards on the righthand side of policy webpages.

We can add quotes in our guidance to tie information back to 1 of our 8 practice standards. (The practice quote shows at the end of the text block.)

Example

"I advocate for the best possible outcomes for te tamaiti and challenge when things aren’t right for them."

Practice standard: Ensure safety and wellbeing
