From our Board Chairperson
E aku nui, e aku rahi, tēnā koutou katoa, special greetings to you all.
As I sign off my final Annual Report as Chairperson, it is with great pride at the incredible work, dedication and aroha demonstrated by our Whānau Āwhina Plunket whānau over what has been a truly unprecedented year.
Through the challenges of epidemic and pandemic, our team has continued to work on progressing Whānau Āwhina Plunket’s key priority areas of becoming a pro-equity organisation and improving Māori health outcomes, reinforcing our digital channels, and supporting our people.
Of course, none of these things, or the other activities highlighted in this report, would have happened without the efforts of our Whānau Āwhina Plunket people – staff and volunteers – or without the assistance of our sponsors, donors and partners. Ngā mihi, and we thank you for your mahi towards our vision of making the difference of a lifetime in the first 1000 days.
