Whanau Ora House Opens In West Auckland
A one-stop frontline Whanau Ora hub integrating health, social, justice and education services will be opened in West Auckland on Wednesday August 24 2011.
Te Whanau o Waipareira Trust is offering families ‘wrap-around’ services tailored to their needs at the new Whanau House – a four-storey complex in the central business district of Henderson.
The centre has five levels where families can access more than 70 services. These include primary health care in the GP clinic, dental and pharmacy as well as a range of ‘secondary services’ offered by the Waitemata District Health Board which is locating specialists’ services closer to whanau and the west Auckland community.
The Whanau House will also be the corporate offices of the Waitemata PHO West Locality and the National Urban Maori Authority known as NUMA.
NUMA is the parent body for the Whānau Ora provider collective that includes Waipareira, Manukau Urban Maori Authority in South Auckland, Te Rūnanga o Kirikiriroa in Hamilton with approved affiliate Te Kohao Health, and Te Roopu Awhina ki Porirua in Wellington which is in development.
