A new resource booklet for families has been provided by Oranga Tamariki, the Ministry for Vulnerable Children, for caregivers and families.
The booklet covers health and education services available for children from birth to 18 years of age, as well as services for pregnant women.
It also provides a checklist so parents and caregivers can keep on top of their child’s development, and ensure they get the services they need at the right time. There’s information about hearing checks, vaccinations, dental check ups, mental health support and more.
