Toi Ora – sources of health, the knowledge of wellbeing; the summit of wellbeing to which we live to aspire. Toi Ora is whānau, whakapapa and hauora all intertwined to nurture the wellbeing of our whānau as well as the wider hapū.
We are Toi Ora when we are well together!
Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of ngā uri o Tuperiri and aim to achieve this by facilitating barrier-free access to enduring health and wellbeing for all.

All uri o Tuperiri are born with the inherent potential to be the leaders of their own journey of hauora. Hauora encompasses all elements of our wellbeing and who we are as Ngāti Whātua – our whakapapa, identity, the connection to who we once were, who we are now, and more importantly who we will become – is the ultimate protective Hauora factor. Ko te tūmanako o tōku whai mahi – to serve my people to the best of my abilities.
As part of the overarching Toi Ora kaupapa, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei offers a universal health insurance scheme for all hapū registered members. Provided in partnership with nib, the motivation providing health insurance for all uri of Tuperiri is to empower whānau to be well, stay well and be the leaders of their hauora journey.
