The Ministry provides policy advice, and delivers social services and assistance to young people, working age people, older people, and families, whānau and communities. We work directly with New Zealanders of all ages to improve their social wellbeing.

About the Group

The team works with claimants through an alternative dispute resolution process to help them understand their past experience in care. We acknowledge and recognise harm done, and take steps to put this right. We also provide Oranga Tamariki and other care providers with information about what has occurred in the past to help ensure claimants' experiences do not happen to others. A key focus of the team is continual improvement based on feedback from all parts of the system to ensure we deliver the best possible outcomes for claimants, and that they encounter mana manaaki (a positive experience every time) whenever they come into contact with us.
