JUNE 2019 CARE AND PROTECTION OVERVIEW

How a child might move through and be supported by our services depending on their needs:

  • report of concern is when a member of the public or a professional notifies Oranga Tamariki that a child or young person may be at risk of harm. In some cases, Oranga Tamariki may have already received a previous report of concern about a child or young person and is therefore already working with them and their whānau.
  • If we're worried that a child's wellbeing could be at risk, an assessment or (if more serious) an investigation takes place. Where we do not undertake an assessment or investigation, we may refer a child to other services.
  • Family Group Conference may then be needed to see what whānau/family support the child needs. A plan is then developed for the child.
  • In some situations, a child or young person may have to be placed in care. This could be someone from their wider whānau or an approved and trained caregiver.
  • When ready, a child or young person may leave care. This might mean returning to their whānau, Or, when they turn 18 they may live independently but still receive support.

A child or young person may leave our services at any of the stages above. They may also re-enter.
