Our care and protection practice vision

Our care and protection practice vision is to keep children and young people safe and free from harm, from abuse and neglect and to promote their well being by working with other agencies, the community and their family/whānau.

Our commitment to our vision is:

  • that we are child-centred, safety and wellbeing focused;
  • that we support and empower families/whānau to care for their children;
  • that we ensure family/whānau and professional decision-making is clear, planned and supported by sound information and evidence;
  • that we ensure families/whānau actively participate in decisions concerning their children.
