Independent Children's Monitor report

The Independent Children's Monitor reports provide independent oversight that helps to ensure that children and young people in care get the support they need and deserve.

The ICM monitors compliance with the National Care Standards Regulations to make sure organisations that look after tamariki and rangatahi are doing what they need to enable them to reach their potential. This includes looking at Barnardos, Open Home Foundation and Dingwall Trust as these organisations also have tamarikir or children and rangatahi or young people in their custody.

So far, three monitoring reports have been released that cover the following timeframes:

  • Report 1: 1 July – 30 September 2019
  • Report 2: 1 October – 31 December 2019
  • Report 3: 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2020

You can read these reports and find out more about the Independent Children's Monitor on their website.
