Whānau Ora

Whānau Ora Navigation works with whānau and families to identify their needs and aspirations, support their participation in education, primary health and employment, and link and coordinate access to specialist services. The navigator approach is tailored to the particular needs and circumstances of each whānau and to understand whānau situations and build relationships of trust and confidence with whānau members. Whānau Ora Navigation assists whānau to set short, medium and long-term goals and encourages them to take charge in working towards those goals. They help whānau connect with services and advocate on their behalf to service providers. Once whānau have been assisted to deal with their immediate needs, our navigator will continue to help them build their capability to be self-managing. The Whānau Ora Navigator is here to help you achieve your goals in all aspects of your wellbeing.

Pregnancy and parenting

Our Kaupapa Māori Antenatal Programme - Te Ha Ora was designed by local Torere midwife, Lisa Kelly and is a holistic, hands on approach for hapu māma and their whānau. It was created out of the need to provide more culturally appropriate antenatal education for Māori women and comprises three distinct resources, Te Kura Whanau – Te Kura Whakapapa, Kia Maumahara, and Wahine Marohirohi. Each resource is unique and encompasses Māori Tikanga and traditional Māori birthing practices. Women will learn about pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding through a Te Ao Māori world view.
