and Te Whānau o Waipareira
A new strategic partnership between Oranga Tamariki and Te Whānau o Waipareira has been officially signed at Hoani Waititi marae in Auckland.
It is the latest in a series of agreements between the Ministry and Māori providers, aiming to ensure decision-making around vulnerable children sits with tangata whenua.
The director of Whanau Ora at Te Whānau o Waipareira trust, Jacqui Harema, said two agreements were signed on Friday, one being a strategic partnership agreement with the other an outcome agreement.
She said the strategic agreement was a commitment from Oranga Tamariki and Te Whānau o Waipareira to explore a new way of working together.
