The Interim Report – Tāwharautia: Pūrongo o te Wā (Tāwharautia) describes the key themes and common issues from the experiences shared with us by survivors and witnesses. The name Tāwharautia is a word that implies providing shelter or care whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Tāwharautia has two volumes.
Volume One outlines our work to date and how we have approached it, and analyses the key themes and common issues from the experiences shared with us by survivors and witnesses;
Volume Two is devoted to the voices of survivors. It shares survivors’ stories about their experiences of abuse in care.
We have published Tāwharautia in several formats including pdf and large text. You can also read them online. A version in easy read format and te reo Māori will be available in the next few weeks.
