Children’s Commissioner releases snapshot
Today the Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC) released statistics on assessments and removals of Māori babies into state care.
It provides a snapshot of what currently happens when Oranga Tamariki is notified of care and protection concerns for Māori babies 0-3 months.
We welcome the publication and supported OCC in providing the data.
Our focus is on improving the lives of children and in order to do that it’s crucial to listen to the views of others so we can better understand the experiences of tamariki and whānau.
