Families Wellbeing Service
We’d like welcome Mary-Anne Boyd to Te Whai Community Trust as our Family Wellbeing Coordinator.
This is a free strengths-based family/whanau service for children and families facing complex challenges.
Anyone can refer or ask for wrap-around support, goal setting and action plans drawing on strengths within the family/whanau supported by community volunteers and relevant professional services such as counselling, healthcare, education, justice, budgeting and life coaching.
Te Whai Sages Senior & Whānau Support is a free in-home volunteer-based service that can provide companionship, advocacy and support for our seniors and families with young children in the Mangawhai area, particularly those who aren't independently mobile, and experiencing social isolation and loneliness. Clients can enjoy conversation, outings, games, a break to catch up on sleep, shopping, meal prep, and companionship.
