In Focus

Whānau Ora

 Whānau Ora is an inclusive interagency approach to providing health and social services to build the capacity of all New Zealand families in need.  It empowers whānau as a whole rather than focusing separately on individual family members and their problems.

Some whānau will want to come up with their own ways of improving their lives and may want to work on this with a hapū, iwi or a non-government organisation (NGO).

Other whānau will want to seek help from specialist Whānau Ora providers who will offer wrap-around services tailored to their needs. Whānau will have a practitioner or ‘navigator’ to work with them to identify their needs, develop a plan to address those needs and broker their access to a range of health and social services.
