Te Waka Whaiora Trust

Mental Health & Addictions Service

Description

Te Waka Whaiora Trust is a charitable trust located in Porirua. We were formed in April 2013 as a result of an amalgamation of two key Kaupapa Māori Health Providers in the Wellington region. The two organisations, Te Roopu Whakapakari Ora Trust and Te Roopu Pookai Taaniwhaniwha, undertook a process to merge as a combining resources strategy. Combining our resources, knowledge, workforce, infrastructures and systems not only increased efficiency but it also increased capacity and capability. 

Our approach recognises that our transformation to Te Waka Whaiora is not only about collaboration as service providers, but is also represented in our capacity to reconfigure existing delivery models to a better aligned Kaupapa Māori approach.
