Independent Children's Monitor report

The Independent Children's Monitor reports provide independent oversight that helps to ensure that children and young people in care get the support they need and deserve.

Te Mana Whakamaru Tamariki Motuhake, the Independent Children's Monitor, provide independent oversight that helps to ensure that tamariki, children, rangatahi and young people in care get the support they need and deserve.

The Independent Children’s Monitor monitors compliance with the National Care Standards Regulations to make sure organisations that look after tamariki and rangatahi are doing what they need to enable tamariki and rangatahi to reach their potential. In addition to Oranga Tamariki, this includes looking at Barnardos and the Open Home Foundation as these organisations also have tamariki or children and rangatahi or young people in their custody.
