``Whānau Ora is about empowering whānau to take responsibility for their own whānau.``
Former Minister of Whānau Ora, Hon Tariana Turia

A solution for supporting whānau success

Te Pou Matakana recognises that in order to support whānau to achieve their goals, solutions must go beyond just one programme or TPM partner.

Whānau often have multiple and complex needs which requires a range of TPM partners and other groups to come together to support successful change for whānau.

As a result of Te Pou Matakana commissioning activities, whānau in Te Ika a Māui (North Island) will enjoy good health, experience economic well-being, be knowledgeable and well informed, be culturally secure, resilient, self-managing and able to participate fully in te ao Māori (the Māori world) and in wider society.

Whānau Ora Partnerships

13 partnerships with 13 unique initiatives, representing more than 80 organisations across Te Ika a Māui focused on building whānau capacity and capability.

A Collective or Partnership is a group of passionate people that come together to tackle an issue in a new way. It involves commitment to partnership, exchange, accountability and the willingness to change.

Collective Impact is a highly structured approach to tackle complex challenges.

It works across all sectors and organisations to create common strategies to achieve a common agenda.
