The purpose of this exercise was to find out more about the 948 young people aged 15-17 years who were currently in the Custody of the Chief Executive of Oranga Tamariki and had been or were likely to remain in care for three months or more. Stage One, completed in August 2018, assessed the level of need of each young person and identified that 378 young people (40%) had a ‘high’ or ‘very high’ level of need. To best support these young people, who are at particular risk of not making a successful transition to independence, we undertook Stage Two to find out more about them.
