Whānau Ora services to whānau living in Nelson / Tasman

Whakatū Marae currently provides Whānau Ora services to whānau living within the Nelson Tasman region. Whānau ora is a wrap-around support service working with whānau to identify their strengths to maintain and restore whānau wellbeing.

Our kaimahi work alongside whānau, drawing primarily upon Māori models of practice.

The use of cultural values, such as whakapapa, tikanga, wairua, tapu, mauri, and mana, have the potential to influence wellbeing in whānau relationships, transform behaviours and provide alternatives to lifestyle. Using these imperatives can guide transformative practices and inform strategies for whānau and whānau wellbeing. They can also be protective factors within whānau, hapū and iwi.
