The policy work of Oranga Tamariki is moving in an exciting direction. We work closely for and with a range of stakeholders from the Minister, iwi and front-line services.
We take a holistic view with our work covering all elements of Tamariki and Rangatahi care or protection from the time they are first referred to Oranga Tamariki until they are transitioning and being supported out of care.
The work the policy group does has a real impact on New Zealanders, delivering practical policy advice that supports children and their whānau in New Zealand whose wellbeing is at significant risk of harm now or in the future.
As well as providing first opinion policy advice, the group also feeds into cross-agency policy work that provides opportunities for the team to be involved in innovative all-of-government initiatives like the Oranga Tamariki Action Plan and Joint Venture on Family Violence and Sexual Violence Prevention.
