Social work visits

Updated: 24 February 2017

What's Important To Us

Social work visits with mokopuna, their parents/caregivers, family/whānau and professionals build respectful and trusting relationships which are the cornerstone of our work with the mokopuna and their family/whānau. Social work visits need to be purposeful and meaningful, with clear objectives and expected outcomes. Your visit needs to leave people feeling like you have really heard them and that you value what they have told you.
