#tātou is the place based Collective Impact initiative with partners in Whānau Centre and is the ‘live’ learning environment informing all key learnings and research for Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki.

Combining services and skills of partners within Whānau Centre, these partners are working collectively on two broad objectives:

  1. To support whānau improve their health and wellbeing (with a focus on obesity) and,
  2. To improve collaboration and health literacy in the Whānau Centre.

Two (2) years into this journey has generated several key learnings and reflections.

These publications document partner and whānau progress to date against these objectives and more defined indicators.

Keep coming back to this page as we continue to update progress along the way.

One of the biggest challenges of a Collective Impact (CI) initiative is to bring together its strengths to translate its shared vision to action. As a workforce we constantly need to think about our work as part of a larger context and consider how our contribution fits into the larger puzzle of activities.

A key strength of our Whānau Centre CI initiative, #tātou, is its workforce and the talent and expertise they bring. This is the third installment of our #tātou series where we hope groups can learn and leverage off our experience, and in particular our Whānau Centre Navigators.
