How we get involved

Care and Protection family group conferences

The Care and Protection Family Group Conference is a formal meeting where the whānau comes together with professionals to talk about the concerns we have for a child or young person, and come up with a plan.

Just as every child is different, so is every family group conference. But what’s common is that everyone who attends is there to set aside any differences, and put the child's needs front and centre.
