The Children's Minister says she's prioritising frontline staff investment in Oranga Tamariki.  

Chief Ombudsman Peter Boshier has released a report detailing two thousand complaints and enquiries he's witnessed in the past four years.  

He concluded work is inconsistent across the country, with some parts showing an alarming "absence of discipline" 

Minister Karen Chhour told Mike Hosking that we can't keep having report after report saying the same things.  

She says we're talking about children and young people with futures ahead of them and we need to do everything we can to ensure these futures are positive ones.
