Use of support orders

Updated: 24 February 2018

What's Important To Us

The needs of mokopuna are best met when they are settled in a safe home environment with people they know love them and care for them. When mokopuna remain in or return to the care of family/whānau, it is important that they are provided with the support they need to reach their potential.

This key information outlines the use of support orders to meet the needs of mokopuna.
