Te Whiri Ora is a coordination service, which launched in February 2022. As a ‘Right Service, Right Time’ initiative, our combined mission is to create a network of supports for children/tamariki, young people/rangatahi and their family/whānau, in ways that work for them, when they need it.
Our coordinators work alongside whānau, extended whānau, and professionals to create realistic goals and a plan to move forward. Our approach is whānau centred - ensuring their voices are heard, that we uphold their mana, and support their self-determination.
Since its launch, the service has supported many whānau in the greater Canterbury region with a wide range of challenges. Our networks have assisted whānau into the appropriate services/agencies and put them in touch with the right people to support them. Every whānau is different, therefore everyone’s journey through the service will look slightly different too.
