The Whānau Tautoko Program is a parenting initiative designed to support and empower families. It will run for a duration of 6 weeks, focusing on various aspects of parenting and family dynamics.

The Whānau Tautoko Program is here to support and empower families focusing on various aspects of parenting.

This program is open to all whānau, and we welcome parents from diverse backgrounds to participate. We understand that schedules can be busy, so if a parent is unable to attend a session, they are more than welcome to return later to complete the missed session and receive a certificate of completion.

For further information about the Whānau Tautoko Program or to register your interest, please don't hesitate to contact our facilitators.

This Open Group is offered at both our Wainoni and Ashburton locations

  • Date: Every Monday
  • Time: 10:00 am -12:00 pm
  • Venue: 161 Pages Road, Wainoni and 111 Tancred Street, Ashburton

We believe that strong families form the foundation of a healthy community, and we are committed to providing support and resources to help families thrive.

Our Whānau Tautoko Program is an integral part of Whai Rawatia te Oranga (Pursue the wealth of health), our holistic health pursuit initiative. Open groups create a space of papa kainga ahi kā, a pā (a place where you feel connected and comfortable) to strengthen your hauora. 

This group contributes to strengthening your Taha Wairua (Spiritual), Taha Tinana (Physical), Taha Whānau (Family and Social) and Taha Hinengaro (Mental and Emotional) wellbeing.

From December 23, 2024 10:00 until December 23, 2024 12:00

Te Whare Tapa Whā

Te Whare Tapa Whā, created by Sir Mason Durie, presents health and wellbeing as a wharenui/ meeting house with four walls: taha wairua - spiritual, Taha hinengraro - mental/emotional, taha tinana - physical, and taha whānau - family/social wellbeing.

Additionally taha whenua - connection to the land forms its foundation. Balancing these dimensions is crucial for overall wellness.
