Being in Care

Information for children

Is everything Ok?

What you think, feel and say matters to us. We’d like to know how you are getting on in our care. You might want to share a good thing, or it could be something you’re worried about. It could be ideas to improve your care.

We promise to listen. When you tell us something, we will only tell the people who need to know and can help. We’ll ask you what would help make things better and try to make things as good as we can for you. 

How to tell us

You can do this by typing into this feedback form

Ask an adult if you want help to fill it in. This might be someone in your whānau, a friend, your social worker, a caregiver, a teacher, a friend or someone else you trust who can listen and help you tell us what you think.

You can also contact VOYCE – Whakarongo Mai, which is an advocacy service for children in care. You can talk to VOYCE  by calling 0800 486 923 or visit their website
