Northland’s first Early Childhood Education social worker has been appointed to work with preschool children and their families – thanks to a ground-breaking Family Works Northern initiative that is also believed to be a first for New Zealand.
Siblings Kylie*, Hayley* and Samuel* had a history of poor school attendance. The family were dealing with financial issues and the children had only one uniform each. To resolve these issues, the children were referred to our Social Worker in School (SWiS) service earlier this year.
