Govt considers new CYF complaints authority

NZPA | Friday, 16 February 2007

Government is considering setting up an independent complaints authority for the Child, Youth and Family Service (CYF).

The minister responsible for the service, Ruth Dyson, said yesterday she asked officials to investigate establishing the authority after an approach from United Future MP Judy Turner.

“Further work on such a complaints authority will continue with the participation of United Future,” Ms Dyson said.

Ms Turner said she was delighted with Ms Dyson’s decision.

“Finally the first steps are being taken to establish an independent entity to ensure CYF becomes accountable to New Zealand families,” she said.”
