The children’s team work on high level interventions with the aim of reducing referrals to Oranga Tamariki – The Ministry for Children.
This initiative aims to put higher level interventions in place for young people and their families to ensure they get the level of support they need. Children are referred to a lead professional who will head the intervention, and put a team in place to work for the young person.
The team is made up of professionals from different services. These are high level interventions requiring significant work from the lead professional.
