Our initial efforts as we transition to Alert Level 2 will be to increase our engagement and make sure tamariki and rangatahi are reconnected with schools, whānau and other important support. In all areas of our practice and operations we apply public health measures of physical distancing, hygiene, contact recording, pre-screening, and health and safety requirements. Use the tabs to find out what you need to know.
Operational reporting in Levels 4 and 3
To have oversight of our operating system during the pandemic we have established weekly operational reporting of key statistics. These include reports of concern, entries into care and referrals to youth justice family group conferences.
COVID-19 Oranga Tamariki Statistics May 2020 provides a snapshot of operations since early March 2020 (three weeks before the start of Alert level 4) until the most recent available time period for each measure (prior to 7 May 2020). It also includes comparison to the same time last year.
This data is helping us target our efforts and plan our response and recovery.
