Paiheretia te Muka Tāngata

Paiheretia te Muka Tāngata – Uniting the threads of whānau (Paiheretia) is a kaupapa that draws on the overarching whānau ora approach with tāne, and their whānau, engaged within the Corrections system. It aims to improve whānau wellbeing and reduce re-offending of tāne Māori under 30.

It will include a specialised navigator workforce with expertise to work directly with Māori and their whānau in their navigational journey through the system.
