Is the government's plan for helping vulnerable kids working?

From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 1 April 2016

A charity which co-ordinates a new scheme providing wraparound care for vulnerable children in Hamilton says it is being undermined by a lack of resources - and families are falling through the gaps. Children's Action Teams have so far been extended to ten regions as part of the governments implementation of the new Vulnerable Children Act. One of the first teams was launched in Hamilton in September last year. Nine to Noon speaks to Ngaio Gillies from the Kirikiriroa Family Services Trust, and the National Children's Director, Sue Mackwell.
