Oranga Tamariki (National Care Standards and Related Matters) Regulations 2018

28 What happens when child or young person is visited


The chief executive must ensure that, when a child or young person in care or custody is visited by a visitor, the visitor seeks to understand how the plan is working, including by—


inquiring about the things that are going well for the child or young person; and


inquiring about any concerns the child or young person may have; and


discussing and seeking to understand matters that are important to them; and


identifying whether their circumstances or needs have changed.


The visitor must, where appropriate and if practical, talk with the child or young person in private to enable the child or young person to express their views freely.
