Strengthening Families helps you get the best support for your family/ whānau to thrive. All the people and agencies who could help your family are brought together. Together you discuss your family’s needs and agree on what everyone is going to do. Eleven New Zealand government agencies are actively involved with Strengthening Families along with hundreds of community-based services, including Te Kauwhata Community House.
Is Strengthening Families for my family/whānau? If you are getting help or require assistance with a child or young person’s education, health or behaviour, to sort money troubles or find a suitable home or other issues, Strengthening Families could be for you. Strengthening Families is available for any whānau/ family in New Zealand when more than one community support organisation or government service is or could be required. It is free and 100% voluntary.
