How can we help keep children safe?

From Oranga Tamariki Update for Providers and Partners: COVID-19 edition #5

We realise that the requirements of COVID-19 Alert Level 4 can put a lot of pressure on families. We want to make sure all tamariki and whānau are safe. We are hosting discussions and responding to questions related to these pressures on our Facebook page. Please check these out and share them with your communities.
