SECURING PERMANENCY

The amendments to the Children, Young Persons, and Their Families Act, July 2016, aim to simplify the securing of guardianship rights when caregivers decide they want to provide a permanent living arrangement for a mokopuna in their care. These new legal changes allow caregivers to choose which legal orders best suits their own and the mokopuna’s needs in becoming a permanent caregiver and what support is available to permanent caregivers including, financial and other assistance (s388A).

By the end of this session caregivers will:

– Proceed with the most appropriate Permanency Orders for your situation

– Access the appropriate s388A support resources to meet your mokopuna’s needs.
