at Oranga Tamariki social workers
Former minister for children Tracey Martin says the current calibre of social workers at Oranga Tamariki is not good enough.
Martin made the comments in reflection of last year's controversial video of Oranga Tamariki workers attempting to uplift a newborn baby from its mother at Hawke's Bay Hospital's maternity unit.
She said the video highlighted that there is both really good social worker practice and really lousy social worker practice in this country.
"We've got 16 providers, there's a huge variation of the way that our social workers are trained and the calibre of many of our social workers is not good enough and I'll tell you what, you'll hear people scream now that I've said that out loud," she said.
