White Paper for Vulnerable Children

The Ministry of Social Development released its White Paper for Vulnerable Children in October 2012 following consultation on the Green Paper for Vulnerable Children.

You can read our comments on the White Paper for Vulnerable Children here and our brief overview of the White Paper's implications for the family violence sector, here.

The White Paper proposes a number of changes to existing systems that will require legislative amendments.  WAVES Trust will be engaging with the family violence sector and the Waitakere community to produce submissions on the relevant Bills as these become available. 

We'll keep this page and the News & Events page of our website updated with information and planned activities as we become aware of these. 

We expect to hold consultation meetings in preparation for a submission on the proposed Vulnerable Children Bill in 2013.

Watch this page for more information ...
