The Independent Children’s Monitor (Te Mana Whakamaru Tamariki Motuhake), which is currently located within the Ministry of Social Development (MSD), will become its own departmental agency within Government.

“Following the recommendations of several reviews, Cabinet agreed in 2019 to build a significantly expanded independent monitor for children in care,” Carmel Sepuloni said.

“The Monitor was set up within MSD while it developed the capability to take on expanded monitoring. The Monitor will now be set up as a new departmental agency and will be responsible for monitoring the Oranga Tamariki system.

“This agency will be hosted by the Education Review Office (ERO), and be led by its own Chief Executive who will be a Statutory Officer.  We expect there to be natural synergies in the work both, it and ERO, carry out to support monitoring.
