Kaupapa Maori vital for CYFS overhaul

Maori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell has told a Whanau Ora conference in Auckland the rebuild of the Child, Youth and Family Service needs to follow a similar kaupapa Maori approach.

He told today's Measuring What Matters hui put on by North Island commissioning agency Te Pou Matakana that it was time for Whanau Ora providers to tell their stories and share their results.

He says there has been a lot of criticism of the policy to deliver integrated services to whanau, but Whanau Ora has only been delivered through the commissioning agency for two years.

That’s in contrast to CYFS, which ran for 27 years before the last of many reports concluded it was a failure and needed to be completely rebuilt.

Mr Flavell says for there to be real change that suits those who are affected by the children’s service, the new entity must adopt a kaupapa Maori world view and framework that provides for the voices of tamariki, rangatahi and whanau to be heard.

He says Whanau Ora has now supported more than 8500 whanau, helping those whanau take control of their lives.
