Understanding need

To provide a foundation for mahi under the Oranga Tamariki Action Plan, Oranga Tamariki is leading a series of in-depth needs assessments focused on the housing, health and education needs of our priority populations.

Ministers and children’s agency chief executives have committed to prioritising the needs and wellbeing of children and young people most at risk – they have agreed upon 11 actions to make this happen.

Action 3 is that Oranga Tamariki will lead a series of in-depth assessments focused on housing, health and education. These will identify unmet needs and set a direction to improve services for these children and young people.
