Te Kahu Tauawhi Whānau (High and Complex Needs) is a collaboration between the Ministries of Health, Education and the Department of Child Youth and Family Services in New Zealand to improve outcomes for children and young people with high and complex needs. Some children and young people have needs so complicated that they cannot be met by just one of the health, education and social services (or ‘sectors’). These children and young people may be a danger to themselves or others, and their family/whānau/caregivers may be unable to provide the care they need.
