VOYCE - 6 promises for 6000 (children in the state care system)

October 09, 2020 at 4:22 PM

From Voyce – Whakarongo Mai

We ask that all incoming Members of Parliament make these 6 PROMISES to the more than 6000 tamariki and rangatahi (children and young people) currently in state care in Aotearoa New Zealand – and to those who come into state care in the future:

  1. I promise New Zealand will honour its duty of parental care to you and provide for you.
  2. I promise to prioritise stability for you throughout your life.
  3. I promise you will be given the support and means to participate and pursue your education goals and aspirations.
  4. I promise that you will have timely access to the health services you need.
  5. I promise to ensure you have a say in all the decisions made about you while in care.
  6. I promise to support you to develop your identity, know your whakapapa and grow your sense of self.
