Enhancing the Wellbeing of Tamariki and Rangatahi Māori

The Cabinet paper and associated minute seek agreement to a two-stage process for how Oranga Tamariki will set measurable outcomes, and develop strategic partnerships with iwi and Māori organisations (including iwi authorities), to enhance the wellbeing of tamariki and rangatahi Māori. The proposed approaches are needed to ensure that Oranga Tamariki is able to effectively respond to requirements under section 7AA of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989.

The paper also sets out that officials will engage in a collaboration process over the next six-nine months with iwi and Māori to develop a long-term approach to setting measurable outcomes and developing strategic partnerships.
