Strengthening Families | Whakapiripiri Nga Whānau

You can make life better for your family

Strengthening Families helps you sort things out when life's challenges weigh you down.
Whatever your concern or need:

Worries about your child's health or behaviour

Making ends meet

Your child not doing well at school

Coping with stress at home

Strengthening Families, Your voice is important

The focus of Strengthening Families is always on you and your family/whānau. You choose when and where your Strengthening Families meetings are held – they could be at a marae or other community setting, for example – and what will be discussed.

You help decide which agencies will be at the meetings; and you can bring family/whānau members and friend for support.

By having everyone together at the same time, you only have to tell your story once.

At your first Strengthening Families meeting...

You talk about what is important to your family/whānau, and what you want to see happen. The agencies invited to be there will talk about how they will assist you and your family/whānau. 

Together, you and the agencies will develop a plan to help you achieve your goals. This plan identifies what everyone will be doing in the days and weeks ahead.

Follow-up meetings will be held to ensure the plan is working for you.
