Whānau Tahi

Empowering Whānau Centric, Self-directed Change and Care

Whānau Tahi connects Whānau, service providers, and funders to enable and empower Whānau-centric, self-directed care for transformative and generational Whānau change.

Our services and pioneering software enables Whānau to develop their own Whānau Plans, bringing together a community of health and social service professionals and practitioners from multiple organisations and sectors (health, education, and social) to work as a team in supporting and empowering Whānau aspirations for overall well-being.

We provide a combination of services and software that empowers Whānau to “take charge” of their own well-being. We also support service providers in operationalising principles-based methodologies for service delivery improvement and measurement of social value.

We are guided by our whakataukī: "Ma te huruhuru ka rere te Manu” ("without feathers, the bird cannot fly").

Whānau – extended family, family group, a familiar term of address to a number of people; the primary economic unit of traditional Māori society. In the modern context the term is used to include friends who may not have any kinship ties to other members.
