Our relationships with Māori

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini kē
My strength is not the work of one, but the work of many

Plunket connect with Māori whānau through Plunket nurse visits, Kaiāwhina or Community Karitāne visits, toy librarys, playgroups, family centres, coffee groups, PEPE parenting groups, education courses in schools, antenatal classes, volunteer groups, and Plunket mobile bus clinics.

Plunket has been working with a number of Māori and Iwi organisations so that we are able to refer whānau to a wide range of services and support in the community.

Plunket participate in Māori events such as Te Koroneihana and Te Matatini o te Ra Kapa Haka National Festival to work alongside other health services to provide frontline services to predominantly Māori attendees.

Resources that have been developed to support Plunket to engage include:

  • Relationship Framework
  • Engagement Framework
  • Mahinga Tahi – Acknowledgement of Working Relationship
  • Te Aroha ki te Tautukunga – Relationship Agreement
  • Te Ūnga mō te Mahinga Tahi
  • Engagement with Māori policy and guidelines
  • Māori events toolkit
  • Area Māori Plan Template
