Maataa Waka was formed in 1990 by a group of people who identified there were a large number of Maori living in Marlborough with needs and nowhere to go for support. The aims and objectives of the society were related to enhancing the social and cultural well being of whanau. The organisation received its first child health contract in 1995, and has continued to evolve into a credible provider that offers a comprehensive range of services. Our team at Maataa Waka is built around a valued staff of experienced, skilled and committed people, who contribute in many ways to our success. We work in partnership with the wider community, including both government and non government organisations, Iwi, Maori Providers and are a partner agency in the Marlborough Childrens Team.
Te Korowai Aroha is a home based mentoring programme where whanau are matched with an experienced and trained mentor to share various parenting and home skills Weekdays only. Full training and support given.
