Community Health Service, Kaupapa Māori, Social


9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.


Nau mai haere mai whaka taumai ki te whānau o Te Roopu Tautoko Ki Te Tonga Inc.

We are a community based health and social service provider, embracing the philosophy and values of tikanga māori to strengthen and empower whānau within our community by offering a range of courses and programmes. 
The strategy behind our service delivery is to encourage and support individuals to take positive control of their destiny.

We implement the philosophies and values of:

  • Mana Atua - spiritual concepts
  • Mana Tangata - peoples' concepts
  • Mana Whenua - resource concepts

into our work practice. We embrace and employ these concepts to address, promote and support the holistic wellbeing of individuals and their whānau. At times we utilise the services of spiritual healers, Kuia and Koroua.
Using tikanga practices has the potential to bring mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing to people.

Te Roopu Tautoko Ki Te Tonga Inc. acknowledges and upholds the belief systems of Tangata Whenua which is in line with other indigenous peoples throughout the world.

Acknowledgement is given to the Treaty of Waitangi honouring the place of Tupuna and Atua.
