Whānau Ora Partners have gathered in Tāmaki from across Te Ika-a-Māui to look back at our successful response efforts during all the severe weather events over the year.

Reflections highlighted our For,By and With Māori approach in how know best how to serve our whānau.

Curtis Bristowe from Whānau Ora Partner, Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou, reflected on their response efforts. He shared that our Whānau Ora approach puts whānau at the centre and as Māori, we know how best to deal with our communities.

"Whānau Ora is one of the most transformational spaces to be a part of. We are all children of Rangi and Papa so that means we know how to come together for a common goal."

Tuwharetoa Health Charitable Trust, Ngā Waihua o Paerangi, Te Tihi, Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga, Te Runanga o Ngāti Porou, Te Puna Ora o Mataatua, Ngāti Hine Health Trust, Te Arawa Whānau Ora and Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki were in attendance.
