Tiaki Tamariki Whakamana Whānau Programme

Tiaki Tamariki Whakamana Whānau Programme

The Tiaki Tamariki Whakamana Whānau programme is a series of one-day interactive workshops that will help you enhance your organisation’s capability to respond to the Act’s changes and help your staff work alongside tamariki and whānau.

Changes to the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989 Section 7AA mean that now more than ever there is a need for service providers to have the skills, practices and structures that support their Māori clients to achieve improved outcomes.

Many of you will have participated in the Tū Rangatira Governance hui held in July 2020, where we discussed these changes. We also explored the Tiaki Tamariki: Whakamana Whānau programme designed to enhance your organisation’s capability to respond to the Act’s changes and help your staff work alongside tamariki and whānau.

The programme’s skilled facilitators will work with you so that you can adapt and respond to your local environment. Regions include: Wellington, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Hamilton, South Auckland, Central Auckland and Northland.

The programme is designed around a whole-of-organisation approach. Such an approach will involve you:

  • Supporting two or three of your staff to participate in and promote organisational approaches within your workplace to achieve improved outcomes for tamariki Māori and their whanau.
  • Participating in the four one-day workshops in your region over the next eight months. This programme is free to attend for Oranga Tamariki contracted providers and their staff.

At this stage the S7AA programme is not offered in the South Island. Oranga Tamariki asked us not to proceed with delivery in the South Island until they had completed further work with Ngai Tahu.
