Whānau Support

Our priority is the protection of the health and well being of our whānau

To help Ngāti Whātua Orakei understand the impact of COVID-19 for whānau, a household survey was developed canvassing health, education, housing, employment and finance. The response from the Whānau Survey was overwhelming and the insights that we have gathered are significant in shaping how, what and why does support look like for our whānau through these unprecedented times.

We’ve made some packs filled with educational resources to help your household through the lockdown. We always want to support your education journey, especially during a time like this. Education Resource packs are being distributed to all whānau households in Aotearoa and Ahitereiria for tamariki aged 1-17 years old.

We are sending packs out to our New Zealand whānau first and then to our whānau in Australia! Please be patient while we send these out to you.

If you have any pātai please email Shazeaa on ssalim@ngatiwhatuaorakei.com

Please be assured that within our Services and Support we are implementing appropriate Health & Safety measures as advised by the Ministry of Health and local authorities to ensure the safety and well being of our people and our communities.
