Scope now for Whānau Ora expansion
The Whānau Ora Review Report is finally out and it finds the integrated service approach is working well for Māori and Pacific families.
Minister Peeni Henare says despite some challenges and improvements needed in the commissioning approach, the findings paint a picture of progress and positive changes for families.
They show as a successful contemporary indigenous wellbeing initiative driven by Māori cultural values whānau ora has the potential to be taken wider, with whānau centred approaches to be implemented right across the Government.
Mr Henare says he has asked Te Puni Kōkiri to work with other agencies in the social sector to see where the whānau ora approach can be implemented.
He will report back to Cabinet later this year with the findings.
