Mokai Patea Services guided by its Mokai Patea Whanau Ora model of care provides a whanau ora service to whanau within our rohe. Our whanau ora model of care specifies that whanau have one point of entry full assessment process with our designated team leader and from there they are assigned to a Whanau Ora Iwi Navigator who will best suit their needs. Our Whanau Ora Iwi navigators work with whanau to identify, develop, implement, and evaluate whanau care plans that aim to improve overall wellness/health and wellbeing for whanau as well as a focus on the educational needs of whanau and the development, production and implementation of whanau education action plans and individual education plans for tamariki and rangatahi. Whanau Ora Iwi Navigators have comprehensive training in a wide range of areas that include Health Promotion, Budgeting, Mental Health & Addictions, Child Protection, First Aid, Communication Strategies, Treaty of Waitangi, Project Management, Whanau Champions, Tipu Ora/Hauora Maori, Tamariki Ora/Well Child services and a whole range of other relevant training that can ultimately help to support whanau.
“Building strong resilient, whanau and individuals who are empowered to make their own positive choices in life will feed into the organisations mission statement”
Kia Tu Mokai Patea!

They work alongside a person and whānau, building trust and understanding the complexity of their needs, empowering them to get control of their money. Financial mentors have a non-judgemental approach and sound financial knowledge.
