Children in
our careNgā tamariki kei te tiakina e mātau

All children deserve to live in a safe, stable, loving home. We provide help and support to families and whānau to ensure this, when there are concerns about child safety.

In some situations though, a child or young person’s whānau may not be able to provide them with safe, stable, loving care. When this happens, we’ll first look within the wider whānau for somewhere to place the tamaiti while things get sorted at home. Sometimes this means that a tamaiti will need to live with an approved and trained caregiver.
