We provide a range of evidence-based and culturally informed services to support youth, whānau and communities.
We provide a range of services aimed at supporting tamariki and rangatahi through whānau-centred approaches to therapy and support.
Our whānau services help to strengthen whānau relationships, increase effective and positive communication and help whānau create lasting hope and positive change together.
Our whānau services are available across the North Island and at the bottom of the South Island, and there are multiple referral pathways, depending on which service is provided in which region.
Most whānau or families experience choppy waters from time to time, and often when tamariki or rangatahi are facing challenges, this can affect everyone in the whānau in one way or another.
Whānau therapies help whānau tackle struggles, challenges or difficulties together as a unit, bringing everyone together to support each other.
We provide a number of services for rangatahi or taiohi (youth) and ratonga taiohi (young adults) in west Tāmaki Makaurau to help them as they prepare for and step into adulthood.
There are other providers throughout the country who are also available to provide similar support, and we will support rangatahi in accessing the right provider to meet their needs.
Out of Home Care Services
Sometimes it’s not possible for tamariki and rangatahi to stay living at home with whānau. When this happens, we provide safe, nurturing homes where tamariki and rangatahi will be cared for and supported to thrive.
The Ahi Kā programme is specifically for Oranga Tamariki caregivers, helping them to understand the experiences and needs of tamariki and rangatahi in their care to best support them.
Being a caregiver is an important and challenging role, which requires a strong network of support, tools and resources. Through Ahi Kā, you’ll receive support for yourself and the resources you need to help you care for tamariki.
