From: Jacquelyn

Dear Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children,
Kia ora,
He mihi nui ki o koutou mo o koutou mahi ma te karakia.

What is the standard rate paid to provide cultural supervision to social workers, kaimahi and counsellors?
What might be the expectation of the supervision?

My main concern sits with the lack of cultural competency among some of our psychologists and workers engaging with Maori. I am particularly interested in filling the lack with packages for training, supervision and professional development.

Our company is currently negotiating some contracts for providing cultural supervision and I am shocked by the discrepancies paid to ourselves as Maori, and ... others. So just wanted to know the Oranga Tamariki rate so I can set a rate that is fair for our clients and fair to ourselves.

Ma te atua e manaaki.
Yours faithfully,
