How we work

We know that often whaanau are the best people to identify their own needs. By walking alongside we can support development, growth, and independence through mana enhancing practice.

We believe using a holistic approach to address complex needs is better achieved when whaanau are empowered to restore the mauri in their pursuit to whaanau ora.
