We advocate for the interests, rights and wellbeing of children and young people

Mana Mokopuna PDF


Mana Mokopuna is the approach we have developed to monitor the services provided under the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989. We engage with children, young people - and their families and whānau - to understand their experiences of Oranga Tamariki and its contracted providers.   

Approximately 30,000 children and young people are in contact with Oranga Tamariki on any given day. Around 6,000 of these are in the care or custody of Oranga Tamariki. Mana Mokopuna has significantly changed the way we monitor the services provided to those children and young people, and the families and whānau who support them.
