‘Whakapiki ake te waiora o te whanau’
Maori Health and Social Services
Welcome to Poutini Waiora - a Maori Health and Social Service provider that delivers holistic care to whanau across Te Tai O Poutini. Established 21 years ago, the service is primarily mobile with kaimahi visiting whanau in their homes or other appropriate settings across the West Coast.
Poutini Waiora are a kaupapa Maori organisation ensuring whanau are central to all decision making in order to support goals and aspirations under the umbrella of ‘whanau ora’.
Therefore the way in which services are delivered to whanau are based on Tikanga and underpinned by the values embedded in manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, rangatiratanga and wairuatanga.
Our main office is based in Hokitika, with two sub-offices – one in Mawhera and the other in Kawatiri. We also provide a disability day programme in Hokitika.
Community Day Programme Kaiawhina / Carer (Casual), Hokitika
