Taeaomanino Trust - Social/Community Health Services
Community Health Service
Taeaomanino is a Pacific social service and health provider based in Porirua.
The organisation was registered as a charitable trust on 3 December 1993. Since then, Taeaomanino has grown to be the biggest Pacific provider in the Wellington region and one of the biggest employers of Pacific people.
Taeaomanino provides the following Social/Community Health Services:
Family Centred Services are intended to help families and aiga/whanau become safe places to be. This involves delivering culturally effective services to families and aiga/whanau, helping them to access any additional professional help they may need, and assisting them to draw on the informal supports available in their wider family, wha-nau and community.
Family Start - Taeaomanino Trust believes that all children have the right to have the best possible start in life. However, we are aware that our children grow up in sometimes challenging environments. The Family Start programme supports families/whanau who are struggling with challenges or problems that put health, education and social outcomes for their children at risk. Participation by families/whanau in the programme is voluntary.
Homebase - Visit families/fanau in the Wellington area, provides practical assistance in the home, provides guidance for home safety and safety of children, provides community service information and link families to appropriate community support.
Social Worker in School - the aim of the programme is to enhance life outcomes for children whose social and family circumstances place at risk their chances of achieving good education, social and health outcomes.
Family Violence Prevention Service - Our Family Violence Service provides a response to child abuse prevention and domestic violence. It centres attention on Pacific children, mothers and or fathers who are exposed to violence in the home and the community. Our service is available to all Pacific individuals and families in Wellington, Hutt Valley, Porirua and Kapiti.
Pasifika Futures Whanau Ora is a government funded initiative that is a culturally specific philosophy and approach to strengthening the wellbeing and future of Pacific families. Whanau Ora is a family centred approach which recognises that the best solutions to family challenges come from Pacific families themselves. Pacific families are supported to achieve their aspirations in education, training, economic development, health, participating in the community, developing cultural capital, strengthening identity and family development.
Taeaomanino also provide a number of Mental Health & Addiction Services. For more information, see the Taeaomanino Trust - Mental Health & Addiction Services page.
