Whānau Ora: Report of the Taskforce on Whānau-Centred Initiatives

This report was prepared by the Taskforce on Whānau Centred initiatives for Hon Tariana Turia, Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector.

The Taskforce developed the framework based on a review of relevant literature, the experiences of health and social service agencies, an analysis of oral submissions received at 22 hui throughout the country, and over 100 written submissions from individuals and organisations.

Common themes emerged, particularly the need for Whānau Ora to demonstrate a ‘Māori heart’, ensure local representation in decision-making, minimal bureaucracy, sustainability and adequate resourcing, a research and evaluation component, and quality relationships between whānau, providers and iwi.
