Seamless service delivery
Te Whānau o Waipareira has embarked on a journey with whānau to deliver an integrated seamless service delivery centred on Whānau Tahi, whānau directed outcomes. This is not new to Te Whānau O Waipareira and has been 25 years in the making. Our investment has included a fully integrated Whānau Tahi performance and outcomes based system.
At the heart of this is The 10 Strands of Whānau Tahi:
Navigating Ways To Aspirational Outcomes.
Practice of these pathways/values ensure Te Whānau O Waipareira continues to lead whānau to aspirational outcomes.
Whānau Tahi Whānau Ora Navigating ways to Aspirational Outcomes

- Champions for future generations
- Political Influence
Many outstanding accomplishments were achieved by the whānau this year. Whilst the passing of our kaumātua Uncle Denis Hansen occurred outside of our reportage cycle, such is the status and standing of this kaumatua and his loss to us, it would be remiss of myself in not acknowledging his contribution.
He is acknowledged throughout the body of this report. We celebrated his 80th birthday at Auckland’s Civic Theatre in June as this was the only venue that could manage the 2000 invited guests who came to pay their respects to a man who served not only his country in the Korean War but also his community throughout.
We will always remember Denis’ contribution and the Hansen family will be written Kaumātua Uncle Denis Hansen large in the history of Te Whānau O Waipareira.
