Navigation Coming Soon


We're Recruiting

We're now recruiting for a Navigator to support disabled Māori and whānau to make their dreams a reality. We are especially interested in people who have knowledge of Te Ao Māori and who are aware of the strengths and complexities of being disabled and Māori. 

Know someone who might be interested? Please share this with  them: 



We are excited to announce that we will soon be able to offer Navigation to whānau in Waitaha. Our Whānau Ora Navigator will work with disabled Māori and whānau to help them find pathways to achieve their goals and aspirations. They will also support individuals and whānau to find their voice and advocate for themselves. 

If you know someone who may benefit from working with a Navigator, please pass on this information and encourage them to get in touch with Kaiwhakahaere Ruth Jones for a korero: or 027 440 8573.

Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for more details.
