Whānau Ora Service

Kaupapa

Whānau Ora is a service designed to advocate for and support both whānau and individuals. Once enrolled, a kaiāwhina will sit with you and your whānau to discuss your needs before creating a ‘whānau plan’ or a ‘healthcare plan’. This will be created in consultation with you and will outline certain goals you’ve identified as being important. Once you are happy with the plan, we will then begin navigating the most appropriate pathway to enable you to realise your goals.
