Ngā Pou Whakaaro, or Whānau Listening Posts, are now open for whānau to share their experiences in relation to government agency Oranga Tamariki. 

Ngā Pou Whakaaro are designed to provide a safe and private space for submissions and will remain open until 31st October, 2019.

The decision to create listening posts was announced last month at the second national hui on the Māori-led Inquiry into Oranga Tamariki.

Ngā Pou Whakaaro aim to raise awareness with whānau about the inquiry's purpose and scope, engage and facilitate whānau opportunities to share lived experiences with Oranga Tamariki, and manage the dissemination and collation of information.

Whānau can share their experiences in a number of ways: through an online survey, by sending submissions via email, by calling the inquiry team, or through engaging with their local Whānau Ora partner.

For further information on the listening posts, including how to make a submission, visit our Māori Inquiry section.
