Minister Anne Tolley to launch Whanganui Children's Team
Minister for Social Development Anne Tolley will officially launch the Whanganui Children’s Team between 2pm and 3pm, on Friday 13 November, at Whanganui’s Tawhero School.
Across New Zealand, Children’s Teams are being established by local people to work in the communities in which they operate. The teams are designed to be flexible so they can respond to the needs of ‘at risk’ children and their families/whānau, within the setting of each individual community.
To date, seven Children’s Teams have been established in Whangarei, Rotorua, Hamilton, Horowhenua/Ōtaki, Marlborough, Tairāwhiti (Gisborne) and Eastern Bay of Plenty.
The Whanganui and Christchurch teams will both be operating by Christmas. Counties Manukau is progressing in its establishment and is expected to be launched early next year. Read more....
