    The Government's introduced changes to legislation ... as it tries to overhaul Oranga Tamariki

    The Government's introduced changes to legislation ... as it tries to overhaul Oranga Tamariki


    It includes partially repealing "subsequent child" provisions, when a parent has previously had a child permanently taken away.

    They also apply to a parent with a murder, manslaughter, or infanticide conviction for a child in their care.

    The provisions require Oranga Tamariki to either apply for a care and protection order, or confirm a child is safe with their parents.

    A review found they often increase trauma and distress for an older child - who is often drawn into court proceedings.

    Children Minister Kelvin Davis says the changes signal the direction they want Oranga Tamariki to take.
