About us | Mō mātou
Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children has a commitment to putting tamariki and rangatahi at the heart of what we do. In our work, we aim to demonstrate these values:

About the Programme
The Oranga Tamariki Practice Programme is a programme of work that seeks to make a fundamental shift in our approach to practice within Oranga Tamariki. At the heart of this shift is the relationships we build with the tamariki, whānau, communities and partners we work with. This will require us to make changes, as an organisation and as individual practitioners.
Our practice will draw from Te Ao Māori knowledge, methods and principles which are by their nature relational, restorative and inclusive. This shift in practice will benefit tamariki and whānau Māori and also better meet the needs of all children and families we work with.
As individuals it is important that we reflect on how our own worldviews (our knowledge, values and beliefs) help us to align with this shift. As teams, we will develop and grow our practice together through shared learning and development. As an organisation we will continue to strengthen the system that supports our practice, and the practice of those we work alongside and partner with.
This approach allows us to:
- Understand tamariki / mokopuna within the context of their whakapapa
- Recognise that the oranga of tamariki / mokopuna is realised within the collective oranga of whānau, hapū and iwi
- Undertake practice which is complementary and can occur collaboratively with our iwi and Māori partners
- Respond effectively to tamariki / mokopuna and whānau Māori in inclusive, relational and restorative ways that also intentionally benefit children and families from all cultural backgrounds with whom we work
This is your opportunity to be part of a unique and exciting programme of work that is shaping the future of statutory social work in Aotearoa in order to achieve better outcomes for tamariki and whanau Māori, and all children and families we work with.
