Stronger whānau & connected,
cohesive, collaborating communities
We have learnt that the social solutions have huge impact on our community and whānau, an impact that transfers positively into education, housing and especially health areas. These new social solutions are challenging but we will work tirelessly to partner with the right groups to ensure
they are realised.
Ruapehu whānau who are happy, resilient, vibrant and strong collective entities have the necessary information, knowledge, skills and confidence to prosper.
These life-changing solutions will create real spaces and activities to foster strong everyday relationships in our rohe where whānau will be inspired and motivated to self-lead
