Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust

Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust provides Whanau support and Youth support.

WWT operates a free, confidential and culturally aware whanau support service, providing information, support, advice and education to empower people to manage their lives and improve quality of life.

The aim is to work with a Whanau Support worker to help you make your own decisions. WWT can mediate on your behalf, and they work to ensure that the family infrastructure remains intact.

WWT offers Housing support, Lifeskills programs and parenting programmes. This includes everything from "one on one" support to Group Programmes, Marae Programmes and Holiday Programmes for youth. Their innovative approach aims to empower and encourage all youth.
