Pānui | Newsletter - Issue 96 - Aug/Sept 2020
Kia ora!

This month's Pānui includes information on reports, responses and other matters related to Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children. Other reports focus on family law reforms from the perspectives of parents, caregivers, family justice professionals and whānau Māori. As always there is also much more.

Please note that the Clearinghouse and Ngā Wai a Te Tūī continue to update the COVID-19 pages regularly and in the light of the different alert levels operating in Auckland (2.5) and the rest of the country (Alert Level 2).

Stay safe, stay well.
