The latest Oranga Tamariki scandal


While we are disgusted with the abuse of the past, Oranga Tamariki can’t even spend the money Government are desperately spending on them in the hope to make real changes…Poor financial management forces Oranga Tamariki to review funding used from Budget 2019-2020Poor financial management of sexual violence services has forced Oranga Tamariki to take the “additional measure” of reviewing what it did with all the funding it got in Budget 2019-20. Read the briefing report from Oranga Tamariki: Budget 2019 Funding for Sexual Violence Services (PDF, 2MB)In the briefing, OT admitted its “inadequate” work and “slow delivery” led to the project having to be shut down last August. …let’s be very clear why Labour are bewilderingly amputating the Children’s Commissioners oversight of Oranga Tamariki by folding it into ERO (Education Review Office). Oranga Tamariki is a neoliberal experiment in welfare who justify their expense by arguing early intervention saves the State downstream costs so using Big Data algorithms can predict which troubled child will cost us more. Recently, once the new Government made it clear that uplifting Māori children was no longer acceptable, Oranga Tamariki cravenly embarked upon reverse uplifting Māori children settled with Pakeha families because their are ‘culturally unsafe’.
