Te Piringa Tupono is a FREE service for whānau whose lifestyle has been disrupted as a result of gambling. Our aim is to reduce and minimise the harm that gambling causes within our whānau, community.

What can we do for you ?

  • We will start by listening and talking to you
  • we can visit you in your home, or wherever you may feel most comfortable
  • we will access information, support groups or courses to meet your specific needs
  • with our support and guidance, you decide what changes you would like to make
  • together we will work on small achievable goals
  • we encourage feedback so that we can continually improve our service delivery.

The Model we use is called Te Toi O Matariki which is known as an "Awakening" model. It works on the concept that in order to realise your need for change, one must understand who they are as individuals, then as Māori, then their cultural base.
Ownership of the way we behave is realigned with the traditional Māori philosophy of wellness.
