Whānau Resilience Service
Whānau Resilience services will support long-term healing and recovery from whānau violence and support whānau to live violence free.
About this Service
Earlier this year the Government, through the Ministry of Social Development, sought to work in partnership with communities and organisations to look at new and innovative ways to support whānau and strengthen protective factors through a new investment: Whānau Resilience.
The Eastern Bay Iwi Provider Alliance utilised well established networks with whānau, hapu, iwi and agencies such as the NZ Police Family Harm Team to successfully secure the Whānau Resilience contract for the Eastern Bay of Plenty, with Tūwharetoa ki Kawerau Hauora as the Lead.
Te Aranga Ake – the Awakening
Phase 1 — Co-Design
Te Aranga Ake can be translated to mean ‘to arise, to stand and to be activated ready for action – the Awakening’. This is the process of discovery of dimensions that stimulate and motivate us to learn about the inner person and those around us, the process of co-design.
Co-design is crucial to the development of a service as is critical to achieving the best outcomes for Whānau. Phase 1 will be focused on working alongside whānau and other providers to design the Whānau Resilience services needed for our communities.
Timeframe: 1 Year
Te Ohonga Ake – the Awareness
Phase 2 – Service Delivery
Te Ohonga Ake includes awareness, development, initiation, start and beginning. Phase 2 involves the delivery of the Whānau Resilience service.
Delivery of services across the multiple Iwi Provider Alliance sites provides the opportunity to integrate with their already well-established social and health services to ensure wrap around support for whānau who need it. This also ensures that whānau are delivered services in a manner that is culturally appropriate to their kawa and tikanga, so more relevant and effective for them.
Timeframe: 4 Years
