WOCA Annual Report


2020-2021 Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency Annual Report.


The 2018-2019 Annual Report not only reflects the year’s progress and achievements of the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency, but it also shows how effective our 80 Whānau Ora partners are in working with whānau to realise whānau success and wellbeing.

The report shows the following:

  • Whānau engagement rates are soaring above our targets.
  • We now have further evidence that whānau are receiving the support they need to turn their lives around: “The Whānau Ora Review Report – Tipu Mātoro ki te Ao” was released by the government in February 2019. It affirmed that Whānau Ora creates positive and sustainable life changes for Māori and Pacific families.
  • Reflecting the value of the Whānau Ora approach, this year we rebranded from Te Pou Matakana – putting Whānau Ora front and centre of our new name and brand.
  • We are seeking to consolidate the Whānau Ora movement and to continue going from strength to strength to support whānau on their chosen pathway to success.
  • Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency moves into the next financial year on a solid foundation, and with a definite sense of purpose and determination for the future.

Overall the 2017-2018 report shows:

  • A strengthening of Whānau Ora both in our approach to commissioning and in Whānau Ora practice.
  • Ongoing refinements to our Collective Impact programme and our commissioning model ensured initiatives are fit for purpose and allow maximum impact for whānau.
  • While Whānau Ora practice continues to grow stronger through our Whānau Ora Accreditation, developed with our Partners and recently endorsed by Social Value International. As well as our workforce development, which saw 45 Kaiārahi ready to graduate with a Diploma in Whānau Ora.
