Āhuru Poipoia

Empowering families, rangatahi, and tamariki through coordinated support.

Āhuru Poipoia

At the heart of Āhuru Poipoia lies the principle of putting Tamaiti at the center of all decision-making. Our moemoeā (vision) is to empower whānau with the tools and resources needed to take ownership and make positive changes for the well-being of their loved ones, hapū, and iwi.

We focus on providing comprehensive tautoko (support) to families, rangatahi, tamariki, and mokopuna.

Āhuru Poipoia is an innovative, responsive model designed to address the diverse needs of the entire family. Our kaimahi collaborate with whānau and partner with existing service providers to deliver tailored support for at-risk tamariki.

Āhuru Poipoia bring together resources from various agencies, organisations, and communities, ensuring that whānau remain a focal point throughout the entire process.

This service can assist with:

  • Coordination of services
  • Advocacy advice
  • Whānau Hui (Whānau led hui)
  • Hui a Whānau (Professional led hui)

How the service works

Whakawhanaungatanga - A member of our team meets with you, providing a comfortable space for open conversation and mutual understanding.

Make a plan

Together, we assess your needs and create a tailored plan. Urgent needs are addressed first, ensuring that each plan takes a holistic approach – recognising that there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

Takiri mai ra ko te ata i te tonga. Ka whariki mai te manu kua ao kua awatea. He ngākau aroha e kitea i roto inga to pito o te whare, Ngā uri whaka tupu ki te maunga teitei. E rupu mai ana e ngā hua papai, He oranga mō te iwi māori. - Nā te Kuia nā Keupe Stafford Fairest.
