Meeting Care Standards

We are working closely with care partners to support a joint understanding of the care standards to achieve the best outcomes for tamariki and rangatahi in care.

Our care partners provide a range of care options for tamariki and whānau under contract to Oranga Tamariki.

Care partners also support us to meet the National Care Standards.

Care service specifications outline how we’ll work together to provide care that meets the care standards. For more information about the roles and responsibilities of our social workers see our Practice Centre website.
