Mangakino Orangatanga is a forum working collaboratively as Māori of the Mangakino community to improve the health and wellbeing of our whānau.

Our forum identifies and addresses Māori health issues, through a holistic approach based on Te Whare Tapa Wha. 

We work closely alongside Te Arawa Whānau Ora ki Mangakino, Mangakino Health Services and Pokapū ō te Taiwhenua.

Some of our mahi includes:

Level 1 Provider of Pokapū o te Taiwhenua - working to close the digital/technology gap with whānau and improve access. This includes supporting whānau with the technology and confidence to engage comfortably with video telehealth, in their home or community

Te Whare Rengarenga - a Wellbeing Programme that provides support around vaping, physical fitness and nutrition (in partnership with Mangakino Health Services)

Tautoko/support for kaumātua: including delivering healthy cooked meals to kaumātua in our community and supporting kaumātua to connect and be at the local marae.

Transport: Supporting kaumātua and whānau with transport options to services and health appointments

Tautoko/support around COVID-19: Supporting our whānau through COVID-19, including information, caring, advocacy and digital aspects e.g. accessing vaccine passports


Our mahi is delivered by volunteers in the Mangakino community.


Child / Tamariki, Youth / Rangatahi, Adult / Pakeke, Older adult / Kaumātua
