When children and young people move (including overseas) policy — Key information

What's Important To Us

Changing locations is a particularly vulnerable time for mokopuna, which means it is even more important that we continue to be child-centred in our every interaction and always put the best interests of mokopuna first. It is our job to make sure their transition is as smooth as possible, and that negotiations between offices do not obscure the needs and wellbeing of the mokopuna. This includes their need for cultural connectivity.
