Atawhaitia – Care Services

The care service provides support to tamariki and taitamariki who have Ngāpuhi whakapapa and are in state care. Atawhaitia service further supports the mātua atawhai who care for tamariki.

  • Support Plans are developed with each tāmariki in care to determine their needs, wishes, and aspirations
  • Support Plans are developed with mātua atawhai to assist with the care of the tamariki and to identify training needs of the mātua atawhai
  • 24/7 support is provided

Anyone interested in becoming a mātua atawhai can contact Ngāpuhi Iwi Social Services.
