Support Services for Children, Young People and Their Families

Strengthening Families is a multi-agency partnership which is aimed at helping children, young persons and families/whānau who are involved with several agencies, but whose problems persist.

It does this by bringing together the family and helping services, to make sure that the right agencies are providing the right services to meet the needs of the family.

Thus, Strengthening Families meetings may include any of a wide range of Government departments and community organisations and includes the schools, the health service (community and mental health), Group Special Education (Ministry of Education), Housing New Zealand Corporation, Child Youth & Family, Police, Inland Revenue, Child Support, ACC, Work and Income, Community Probation Services, District Councils, Presbyterian Support Services and Te Puni Kōkiri Services.
