The Pātaka is a storehouse of information and resources for primary care workers, kaimahi, and whānau looking for information on alcohol and other drug care.
A place of sustenance for those looking to nurture their understanding.
Our rangatira want to have brave conversations that inform and challenge, in order to create understanding and innovation. We recognise the rights of whānau, hapū, and iwi to have inclusion in decisions that impact on their wellbeing, taking further steps to foster future Māori leaders and innovators.
The Whare Tukutuku approach incorporates the importance of continuous learning. We want to create a safe learning space for kaimahi, practitioners, and pou whānau, one that provides opportunities for ongoing development.
Whare Tukutuku value community engagement and getting alongside people in their own communities. There are whānau who are looking for culturally safe, evidence-based alcohol and other drug care practices. If you would like to wānanga with us, we’d love to connect with you and your hapori, to share stories, and celebrate who we are as whānau Māori.
Research & Evaluation
Kaimahi and whānau want reliable evidence-based information. Whare Tukutuku use an approach that is robust, well informed, and culturally appropriate. It is vital that we collectively broaden our understanding of whānau care so that we can continue to produce work that supports the whānau narrative.
