Children's Teams

Children's Teams services have now transitioned to the community, but we know tamariki and whānau may require support from a range of services.

Co-ordination of services

Communities, other agencies, and non-government organisations work together to meet the needs of tamariki, their families and whanau.

Together they share information to provide joined-up support around our at-risk children and their whānau. The services come together and create and coordinate one plan for each child. 

In some areas, coordination of services for children at risk of harm has transitioned from Oranga Tamariki Children's Teams to community-based organisations. The contact information for these services is below.
