In the Youth Court

What's Important To Us

It is important to us that Oranga Tamariki staff members who are involved in working with the Youth Court have a good understanding of the processes of the Court and how they relate to us and the people with whom we work.

Staff members must present and conduct themselves in a professional manner in the Youth Court. This enhances the organisation's reputation of delivering quality service and support as required under the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989. We do this by writing informative, clear and concise reports and plans and by responding in a timely manner to directions and referrals made by the Youth Court and others engaged in the youth justice process.
