Waka AmaOne of the highlights of the Kuia and Koroua programme is the participation of our teams in the National Waka Ama Championships. This involves many hours of training on the water but well worth it in the end.
We work with other services across our organisation to ensure kaumātua have all the adequate resources including Whānau Ora, Rehua Medicl GP Practice and Homebase Support Services.
How It Works
Kaumātua support services can be accessed by self-referral, midwives, GPs and other maternity health providers.
