Report on the progression of the Omnibus Bill for Children, Young Persons, and Their Families (Oranga Tamariki) from inception to implementation.
Executive summary
This report will follow the Omnibus Bill for Children, Young Persons and Their Families (Oranga Tamariki) 2016 (224-2) through the policy pathway, from inception through to enactment in 2016. The Bill is an amendment to the already established Act for Children and Young Person’s 1989, and affects various other Acts for example the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014.
Minister for Social Development and Employment, Honourable Ruth Dyson, announced in a media statement in 2007 that this Bill will be more responsive to the needs of children of New Zealand (Scoop, 2007). The aim of the Bill was to make amendments that will address the care of children in the Child Youth and Families (CYFS) (now known as Oranga Tamariki) system, placing an emphasis on the need for these children to enter the care of those that are whanau with hapu, iwi and whakapapa knowledge and connection directly associated to that child or children. In addition, the Bill will also ask that youth in the judicial system is changed to 17.
This Bill hoped to provide children with a voice in their care and a continuation of connectivity with family and all that it encompasses, it also looked to raise the youth age for the justice system to provide further protection for youth of New Zealand. The Bill will also make amendments to the Vulnerable Children Act.

This report will look at Children, Young Persons, and Their Families (Oranga Tamariki) Bill that aims to make amendments to the Children and Young Person’s Act of 1989. This Bill will change the processes that were developed for children under state care; previously children have been many times been placed in the care of strangers and on numerous occasions received abuse and lost family connections (Collins, 2015). I chose this Bill because it emphasises the changes the Government is making to policies that ensure the well-being of children is a priority in New Zealand. In this report, I will consider the history of children in the care of the state and the influence the Treaty of Waitangi has had on inducing this change to the Act. Consideration will also be given to the select committee and the discussions that were held in the lead up to the enactment of the Bill in 2016.
This Bill is important to me as it is part of my future in the bid to help protect children and their families, with a focus on Maori child...
