Family centered care and awhi


We engage with the whole Whānau to create better outcomes

Whānau Ora Community Health

We support whānau health by promoting whānau participation and self-management of health conditions through whānau health plans. We work closely with your GP and other health services to ensure you receive the best level of health care in the community.

Intensive Whānau Support

We work with you and your whānau to prevent recurring violence by supporting you to create strategies of whanau resilience that are tailored to suit your whānau. The plans are whānau led to support your whānau needs and goals. The service can provide Tikanga based approaches that provide re-connection to Whakapapa, Tikanga mo Te Reo Maori and other long-term change.

Māori Health Service Coordination

We can help improve your access to primary medical and community health facilities by providing community-based assessments, co-ordination and referrals into other services. We offer whānau support and advocacy through education and promotion.

Needs Assessment & Service Coordination

NASC is a community-based assessment and coordination service that is accessible, co-ordinated and provided from a Kaupapa Māori framework and responsive to the needs of whānau. We can assist you to access a range of community-based resilience-, recovery- and support-focussed services that will enable people with mental illnesses to lead their lives as independently and productively as possible.

Triage Services

We have trained staff who provide phone and face to face enquiries without a planned appointment. Triage gathers brief information and provides information on the best service to suit your needs. Triage can help you if you have an urgent problem that cannot wait for your next routine appointment. Our staff are extensively trained and monitored.

Whānau Ora Support

Our Whānau Ora worker supports with a range of non-clinical services to help you and your whanau. The service can;

  • Assist you to manage household duties and personal care
  • Assit you to access community activities
  • Assist you to access health, education, pre-vocational and welfare services and cultural support
