Oranga Tamariki works with around 60 care partners that provide safe homes and places to live for children in care. Together we designed changes for Partnered Care that focus on experiences and outcomes and meet the National Care Standards.
What is Partnered Care?
The way we work with care partners is aligned with the intent and aspirations of the National Care Standards and wider commitments such as Section 7AA.
Becoming a care partner
This page provides information on the process that organisations go through to become a care partner and the support that is available.
Service Specifications and Care Model Summary
Our ways of working together with care partners focus on improved practice, partnerships, and outcomes. The service specifications and Care Model Summary documents are child-centric and aligned to this vision.
There are three funding models for partnered care: dynamic, fixed and individualised. All models provide 'all-in' funding to enable partners the flexibility to respond to the individual needs of the children in their care.
The Quality Assurance function within Partnering for Outcomes supports quality practice and learning across Partnered Care. It also has a role in confirming new care partners.
We are changing the way we share data with our partners to improve the security, accuracy, and quality of the data that we hold.
