National standards regulations for children in care approved

July 27, 2018 at 10:11 AM

From the NZFVC

Regulations for national standards of care have been approved under the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989 (Children’s and Young People’s Well-being Act 1989).

The care standards, officially called Oranga Tamariki (National Care Standards and Related Matters) Regulations 2018, will come into effect on 1 July 2019. These set out the standards for children and young people who are in the care or custody of Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children. The standards also apply to organisations that have a child or young person in their care or custody under the Oranga Tamariki Act.

The regulations establish actions that must be taken to make sure children and young people receive an appropriate standard of care. The regulations have six parts:

  • Needs assessments, plans and visits to children and young people
  • Support for children including general support, whānau connections, culture and identity, play, health, education and making a complaint
  • Caregiver and care placement assessment and support
  • Supporting children and young persons to express their views and contribute to their care experience
  • Supporting children and young persons during care transitions
  • Monitoring and reporting on compliance with these regulations

They also include a Statement of Rights for children and young people.
