Packing list and protocol
New to Hei Whakapiki Mauri?
Hei Whakapiki Mauri is a Whānau Ora initiative that brings together Māori with disabilities and their whānau to awhi each other to gain the confidence and knowledge to be Māori first. We’ve been operating in Ōtautahi since 2016, and with the support of CCS Disability Action, we are excited to extend our work with whānau to the Timaru area.
We provide practical, whānau-based support and take a holistic approach to supporting and responding to the needs of whānau. This can mean helping with anything from the little things that give people their mana, to planning for the future. Whakawhanaungatanga and hui are central to how we work.
