 Sorted Kāinga Ora is a programme that builds the financial capability of whānau so they can make choices about how to meet their housing aspirations. It includes eight workshops followed by a navigation period to support whānau to develop and implement their plans. It was developed jointly by Te Puni Kōkiri and Te Ara Ahunga Ora (Retirement Commission).

The programme is designed to support whānau to develop and implement their plan for housing, whether the plan is for managing or improving their current housing arrangements or preparing for home ownership.  By building the financial capability of whānau, the programme also helps them to develop healthy financial habits and have conversations with whānau about money matters.

The programme is delivered by rōpū contracted by Te Puni Kōkiri using facilitators trained by the Te Ara Ahunga Ora (Retirement Commission).

 Graduates of the Sorted Kainga Ora programme delivered by Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga, in Hastings.
