Care and protection

Children and young people are safe and free from harm, from abuse and neglect and their wellbeing is promoted by other agencies, the community and their family/whānau.

We will:

  • be child-centred, safety and wellbeing focused
  • support and empower families/whānau to care for their children
  • ensure family/whānau and professional decision-making is clear, planned and supported by sound information and evidence
  • ensure families/whānau actively participate in decisions concerning their children.
