Oranga Tamariki defends using restraints on young ppl

From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 7 October 2019

Oranga Tamariki has defended its anti-bullying procedures and use of restraints on young people in care. A report published by the Children's Commissioner today, called 'A Hard Place to be Happy' paints a grim picture for young people in care and protection facilities. 52 young people were interviewed for the report and some describe being constantly bullied, while others say they were left with carpet burns and bruises from being restrained. But Trish Langridge from Oranga Tamariki told our reporter Katie Doyle, the agency has the correct processes in place.
