Why Whānau Ora?

Whānau-centred

Whānau Ora puts whānau at the centre of decision-making about their future.

It recognises the collective strength and capability of whānau to achieve better outcomes in areas such as health, education, housing, employment and income levels.

 

 

Whānau-focused

Whānau Ora is a revolutionary public sector initiative because it devolves the delivery of Whānau Ora services to community-based commissioning agencies.

These agencies work with partners, providers and navigators to deliver customised support and services to whānau.

The benefits of Whānau Ora have been written about and are available to read here.

Whānau Ora is Life-Changing

Since 2010, the Whānau Ora kaupapa has been life-changing for thousands of men, women and children.
