How funding works
We provide funding to NGOs, strategic partners and communities to help us deliver services that support tamariki and rangatahi.
Providers contracted by Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children, must have the capability and capacity to deliver quality social services on an on-going basis. The Social Services Accreditation team at the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) assess organisations to make sure they’re suitable:
Level 1 accreditation Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children is responsible for assessing and approving new care partners and services under section 396 of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989. Applications to become a care partner should be made to the Oranga Tamariki Māori, Partnerships and Community National Quality Team. Once a provider’s application to become a care partner has been accepted, the Māori, Partnerships and Community National Quality Team will confirm that the provider is ready and eligible to start the Level 1 accreditation process with Te Kāhui Kāhu.
