Te Puna Hauora o te Raki Paewhenua - Health & Social Services

Primary Healthcare Service

Today

58A Akoranga Drive, Northcote, Auckland

8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

Description

Te Puna Hauora serves clients from Devonport to Whangaparaoa (& Wellsford). Within these areas there exists a considerable population of people who traditionally suffer from health inequalities i.e. people with lower socio-economic status, Maori, Pacific Islanders, immigrant and refugee groups etc. People within these groups tend to have ongoing issues with their health and wellbeing - physical, mental, and social.

Te Puna was established as a Maori Health provider to address these issues by providing high quality, accessible and affordable care and support. An alternative to ‘mainstream’ services, Te Puna has grown remarkably and currently has over 7000 enrolled clients.
 

Our Mission Statement

Committed to support people, children, young persons and their families, to make informed choices to regain their dignity (mana) and to provide a health service by staff who care and commit their collective knowledge and skills to the kaupapa. The efforts of Te Puna Hauora services are underpinned in nga Tika, Pono, and Aroha.


Our Vision Statement

Our vision is to make New Zealand a better place for our children and our children's children. To strive for equality and fairness, working in partnership with friends and allies who share our values, creating our own success, with skill and passion.

Celebrating difference, nourishing opportunities for action, and being leaders in everything we do.

 

He aha te mea nui – he tangata, he tangata, he tangata

What is important - it is people, it is people, it is people

He aha te huarahi – I runga, I te TIKA, te PONO, me te AROHA

What is the pathway - it is doing what is right with integrity and passion
