CYF neglect highlights Whanau Ora need

The North Island Whanau Ora commissioning agency is ready to step into the gap identified by a damning report on Child, Youth and Family.

Te Pou Matakana chair Merepeka Raukawa-Tait says the Children’s Commissioner’s report confirms yet again the status quo does not work, and it's time to adopt a Whanau Ora approach when working with children and young people, especially the high number of Maori in state care.

She says government agencies should resource communities adequately to look after communities.

Whanau Ora shifts the focus from individuals to collectives and from crisis intervention to capability building.

Ms Raukawa-Tait says it works for families because it empowers whanau to transform their own futures by taking control of their lives.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.
National's new draconian Oranga Tamariki welfare reforms are anti-Māori, anti-women and anti-human

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
