Residence regulatory reviews
Every year we review and report on the care provided at Oranga Tamariki Youth Justice residences. The reports detail where we’re achieving a high standard, and more importantly, areas that should be improved.
The National Care Standards clearly set out what children and young people can expect while they’re in care, and what caregivers can expect when they have children in their care.
Oranga Tamariki is carrying out a review of the financial assistance provided to caregivers.

Section 7AA Quality Assurance Standards
This document outlines the five quality assurance standards to ensure that we meet our obligations under section 7AA (2)(a) and (b) of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989, and standard Treaty of Waitangi principles (applicable to all Crown agencies) in the development of policies, practices and services.
The standards will help to shift our work from a monocultural lens, to a Māori centred approach which in turn will improve the effectiveness of policies, practices and services for the majority of those impacted by the Ministry – tamariki Māori, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
