Returning children and young people safely home

Updated: 21 June 2017

What's important to us

The needs of children and young people are best met when they are settled in a safe home environment with people they know who love them and care for them. We need to ensure that when children and young people return to the care of their parents, they and their family/whānau are well prepared and provided with the supports they need in order to reach their potential.

This key information provides information about returning children and young people home — from making the decision to monitoring and review, and thinking about the future.
