Mā te mahi tahi e tipu matomato ai ngā whānau o te Tairāwhiti.
United leadership that enables all whānau to flourish in Tairāwhiti.
The transition of Te Pa Harakeke (The Children’s Team) to a community-led model supported by Turanga Health commenced on 29 November 2019. Tairawhiti was the first of ten Oranga Tamariki led Children’s Teams around the country to transition to a community led model. As part of the transition to a locally led approach, some parts of the model have and may continue to change. The parts of the model that have not changed include:
1. Local governance - Manaaki Tairawhiti remains committed to the ongoing governance role for Te Pa Harakeke.
2. Principles and Values – The locally developed principles and values of Te Pa Harakeke will remain unchanged.
3. Purpose - the coordination of services for children at risk of harm at the earliest opportunity remains the key focus of the model.
4. Resourcing– Te Pa Harakeke will continue to provide local leadership, direction and coordination of support to vulnerable children and their families in the community.
Co-design of the new model has been guided by the collective work of Manaaki Tairawhiti. The next phase of developing the new model will involve sense checking with key stakeholders. Key stakeholders are asked to add their input into the co-design as we finalise the new model over the coming weeks.
