    A World Strong with Tamariki


    Tamariki and whānau are safe, recover from past trauma, reconnect with each other and create a positive future


    In support of our vision and mission, Stand Tū Māia values are embedded in tikanga:

    • Te reo me ona tikanga – The language and underpinning values

    • Whānau, hapu and iwi – whānau and wider kinship relationships

    • Whakamana Tangata – Respect

    • Te Whakawhānaungatanga o nga mea katoa – Diversity

    • Nga mahi tika – Rectitude



    We enable New Zealand’s most vulnerable children to be seen and heard, in safety, and have their dreams and hopes nurtured.

    Our strategic intent is to ensure lasting outcomes for all vulnerable children using a partnership approach with every organisation active and interested in making New Zealand a safer, healthier and happier place for our children.

    An important goal of Stand Children’s Services service is to partner with families and community stakeholders to support, maintain and enhance our most vulnerable children’s lives in the homes, schools and communities they belong in. We believe that both families and local communities are strengthened in this process.
