Whānau Ora

Whānau Ora focuses on the whole whānau to support their wellbeing and help them to achieve their goals.

We have two navigators working holistically with whānau to assist them to become more resilient and empowered to self-manage.  Our key focuses are with whānau who remain deeply affected by earthquake related issues, and also working with young parents and rangatahi who are long-term unemployed.

A key part of this whānau capacity building process is the Path Planning Tool which helps a whānau map out their individual and collective aspirations.  Goals are then generated so the whānau can see the step by step actions needed to strengthen their whānau ability to achieve them.   The Path Planning Tool is pulled together by the whānau in a poster format providing them with a visual representation of their dreams and a road map of how to get there.

Our Whānau Ora mahi is funded by Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu who have also supported us with a whānau-centred initiative focused more intensely with the whānau of rangatahi who are engaged in our alternative education programme, Te Kaupapa Whakaora.  This work aims to support whānau to participate fully in society and confidently participate in te Ao Māori.
