Oranga Tamariki has been described as not fit for purpose and needing  transformative change. 

A Ministerial advisory panel has just released its report into the agency and made three over-arching recommendations.

The review was part of the government's response to widespread criticism of Oranga Tamariki's policy of removing vulnerable children from their families.
