Strengthening Families

Helps families reach their full potential

Strengthening Families is dedicated to helping whanau and families connect with the support services and agencies they need. This could be anything from working with a budget advisor, truancy officer or social worker, to a medical specialist, counsellor or teacher. The different organisations will work together to help develop a plan of action that best suits your family or whanau. The aim is to shift the focus from crisis intervention, giving you the support right when you need it, before any difficult situations get worse.
