Youth justice: ‘We need to do something for these people‘

Oranga Tamariki may have hundreds more teen offenders to provide secure youth justice care for when law changes, allowing most young people to avoid jail until their 18th birthday, come into force next year. But is it succeeding with turning young lives around now? Philippa Tolley investigates.

It‘s not a prison but the tall wire fences and security processes at this complex in the industrial Auckland suburb of Wiri, let you know it‘s not far off it. To get right inside Korowai Manaaki – which translates to a cloak of protection – you have to go through a secure two-door system; one has to close behind you and lock before the other is opened. It is 1 of 4 youth justice residences around New Zealand that hold 14 to 16-year-olds who are serving time or awaiting to appear in youth court.
