Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust are a large social care provider in Ōpōtiki delivering a range of services including housing and whanau support, budgeting, foodbank, youth services and pastoral care. As part of our mahi to connect with and work with the people of Ōpōtiki to develop a best vision for future wellbeing and our Ōpōtiki community, we have developed a programme of provider engagement workshops to:
1. Work with kaimahi to articulate a best vision for the wellbeing of our Ōpōtiki community;
2. Identify the indicators and measures of success;
3. Identify everyday voluntary activities that Kaimahi wishing to express their ngakautanga can take action on today utilising existing resources and strengths;
4. Work with providers to embed this ngakautanga within the organisational culture.
The results from these workshops will be provided in a brief follow up article from Kō Kollective’s executive chair Shannon Hanrahan.
