Caregiving brings many challenges. As a caregiver you are responsible for some of the most vulnerable children in society; you provide a vital service. It is therefore distressing when an allegation is made about the way you care for a child or young person.
Up to three quarters of allegations are found to be unsubstantiated, however when an allegation is made, Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry for Vulnerable Children have a statutory responsibility to investigate ALL notifications regardless of whether you care through them or another care provider.
Fostering Kids New Zealand’s Allegation Support Service is designed to support caregivers through the allegation process.
