Caring for children and young people policy — Resources

Updated: 24 February 2017

What's important to us

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