Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki
In November 2014, Te Pou Matakana announced their intent to fund collective impact initiatives. They envisaged this would bring groups and people together in a structured way to achieve large-scale social change for whānau. As a result, Te Whānau o Waipareira approached other like-minded partners and submitted a combined Expression of Interest (EOI) – resulting in the establishment of Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki.
Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki is the witnessing of a significant historical milestone for Māori across Tāmaki. It is the first time that Māori have come together in such a comprehensive way across Iwi, Urban Māori and Māori provider groupings to deliver a regional collective impact programme ‘for Māori by Māori to Māori’.
Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki Partners include:
- Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua
- Te Puna Hauora
- Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Maia Limited
- Manukau Urban Māori Authority
- Kotahitanga Collective (Papakura Marae, Te Kaha o Te Rangatahi, Turuki Health Care)
- Te Whānau o Waipareira Trust
Through the EOI process Te Whānau o Waipareira was mandated as the Lead Agency and backbone support for this newly formed collective.
Since 2014 Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki has achieved many milestones. Some key ones include:
- Establishment of Ngā Pou o Te Whare o Waipareira, placed based collective impact initiative called #tātou
- Developed and implemented a collective impact capacity building programme for all partners,
- Published two shared-learnings documents from the #tātou journey to date and,
- Establishment of a CI initiative in South Auckland.
Off the back of #tātou, Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki have produced the following publications as training resources for other collective impact initiatives.
