Caring for children and young people policy — Resources

Updated: 10 September 2019

What's important to us

We want all tamariki (children and young people) to reach their potential. Wherever possible we need to support their whānau or family to care safely for them, and to support extended whānau or family to provide care when tamariki are unable to live with their parents. This includes working in partnership with whānau or family, supporting their participation in decision-making, and the provision of safe and secure care of their tamariki.

We have a lot of resources available for caring for children and young people.
