to reform Oranga Tamariki
This week the Government said it would accept all the recommendations made by the group, including decentralising decision-making to communities and making uplifts an absolute last resort.
Oranga Tamariki's problems have been well-documented over the past couple of years, such as its apparently racially biased targeting of Māori and Pasifika children for uplifts.
The biggest change is arguably the move to decentralise much of the ministry's decision-making and funding to local communities. But some prominent Māori voices - such as National Urban Māori Authority chair Lady Tūreiti Moxon - have said it should be scrapped altogether.
Appearing on Newshub Nation on Saturday, group chair Matthew Tukaki said the reforms actually go further than any previous report has suggested, by devolving responsibility and decision-making away from Wellington to local organisations on the ground.
