Manurewa Marae is a beautiful marae sitting the shores of Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa (Manukau Harbour).
The Manurewa marae was originally initiated by the vision and passion of a handful of whanau living in Manurewa, who wanted a marae to support Tangihana and ensure that Maori Tikanga, Kawa and heritage were maintained. The marae has now grown with the community into a beautiful safe haven, where whanau, organisations and people of all cultures can come and learn in a vibrant and sacred setting.
THE WHAKAPIKI ORA PROJECT
"A Community Response to Whanau in Need"
We are looking for a whole range of skills to assist and support us with this Kaupapa. In particular we are seeking organisations who would like to be part of the
Whakapiki Ora Whanau Ora Community Hub
The intention is the Community Hub will provide whanau with a korowai of services. Similar to that of a “One Stop Shop” where whanau can access services such as Work and Income (WINZ), Housing (HNZ), Social Workers, Counsellors, Mental Health, Education services, Legal advice, and Advocacy Whanau Ora support services to name a few.
We will have a couple of mobile offices here on site, that will be used to home services that we would like to have operating during the project, Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm.
You may have a representative who would be available on certain days or for the whole duration of the 12 week period? Any support is appreciated.
A registration of interest page has been set-up on our Manurewa Marae website which we encourage those who are interested in being part of the project to please register by clicking on the link below prior to attending the hui on Wednesday if you have not already done so as well please.
