Over the past few months, Fostering Kids New Zealand have been advocating for the family group home caregivers and the conditions in their agreements. A meeting was recently held in Auckland and concerns were raised about the current contract/agreement. Oranga Tamariki are now reviewing the current agreement in consultion with Fostering Kids NZ about the content.
It is heartening to see group family home caregivers from Invercargill to Auckland staying in touch and supporting one another through our Family Homes facebook page (closed group). If you are not a member of this page and would like to please contact Rob Surtees on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see many of you at conference to continue the discussion.
