Implementing the operating model

Cabinet papers about the new Oranga Tamariki child-centred operating model to transform our service response to New Zealand's most at-risk children and young people.


The nine Cabinet papers and associated minutes seek agreement to policy direction and implementation of the Oranga Tamariki operating model, which helped to inform Budget 2019 decisions.

They include:

  • A suite of six Cabinet papers on 'Transforming our Response to Children and Young People' (October 2018).
  • An earlier Cabinet paper on 'The Future Direction of the Intensive Intervention Function for Oranga TamarikiMinistry for Children' (May 2018).
  • Two additional Cabinet papers that followed on from the suite of six: 'Children's teams' and 'Pre-Commitment Funding' (November 2018).
