Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Vulnerable Children


When children need secure, loving, long-term homes, we'll work with family and whanau, caregivers, and adoptive parents to find them one.

When young people offend, we want them to get back on track and make good decisions in the future. We'll organise a conference for the young person, their family and the victim of their offending to meet and talk about the impact of their actions. We'll then help them get back on track for a successful future.

We partner up with hundreds of social services providers to get the message to communities - together we can help all our children be safe, strong and thrive!

Daily 9am – 4pm

Call 0508 326 459 or 909 9295

Oranga Tamariki
Community Probation

Our Probation Officers work with people on probation to motivate them to make changes in their lives. This may include attending programmes to address violence, alcohol and drug abuse or driving offences. If appropriate, offenders can attend programmes that teach them about Maori culture and give them an opportunity to re-connect to their iwi.

There is a strong focus on reducing the likelihood of their re-offending, and keeping the public safe.
