About Poutini Waiora

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.
