The journey to achieve oranga tamariki starts here and now. Guarding the wellbeing of our children is a huge, but exciting challenge – one that every New Zealander has a hand in. Will you join us?
We are a new Ministry dedicated to supporting any child in New Zealand whose wellbeing is at significant risk of harm now, or in the future. We also work with young people who may have offended, or are likely to offend.
Our belief is that in the right environment, with the right people surrounding and nurturing them, any child can, and should flourish.
The Ministry is undertaking a nationwide survey about New Zealand’s children and young people. We want to find out how well we, as a country, are supporting our children and young people to thrive.
Between 23 May 2017 and 25 June 2017, approximately 12,500 New Zealanders will be invited either by letter or by an interviewer to take part. Nielsen an independent research company, is undertaking this survey on our behalf. For more information contact Nielsen
