Children Action Plan

August 28, 2013 at 11:51 AM

Minister responsible for Family Violence Hon Tarian Turia supports the Children Action Plans released by Minister Paula Bennett.

However, Minister Turia expects 'the state to be building strong relationships with whanau, hapu and iwi.' This will ensure that 'while some children must be removed from their parents, they should always be placed with extended whanau.'

In the past children in state care were abused but were also alienated from their kin and culture. the state and community can and must work together to stop this practice and offer our children care and well being.
