Te Puni Kōkiri leads Te Puni Kōkiri influences Te Puni Kōkiri invests in
Discrete areas of policy and innovation affecting Māori including whānau-centred approaches and design, including Whānau Ora. Social policy work programmes led by other agencies, such as housing and urban development policy. Building whānau and rangatahi capability and wellbeing through a range of initiatives.
The shift we are seeking: Whānau are increasingly able to access whānau-centred services from the public sector

Our goals for the next four years are that:

  • the whānau-centred approach is recognised and adopted by other public sector agencies; and
  • whānau, hapū and iwi are able to capitalise on opportunities, and are equipped to innovate and achieve their aspirations.

The coming year’s focus will include learning the lessons from the Whānau Ora review initiated during the 2017/18 year, and ensuring that this informs the ongoing development of whānau-centred services. We want to see the whānau-centred approach increasingly adopted across the public sector, and whānau outcomes meaningfully reported.

We will also focus on developing our practice in ensuring that regional insights and intelligence inform policy development and the practices of public sector agencies. This will foster an enabling environment for whānau wellbeing.

Our investments will contribute to whānau-driven community development in particular centres.
