Our adoption practice vision

Our adoption practice vision is to provide children and young people with safe and secure permanent families.

Our commitment to our vision is:

  • that we promote the development of strong attachment bonds, while sensitively responding to issues of separation;
  • that we encourage adopted children to maintain and develop a strong sense of identity by having an understanding of their cultural and kinship links;
  • that we ensure family/whānau and professional decision-making is supported by sound information and evidence.
