Whether you need support with your wellness, employment or would like to plan aspirational whānau goals, our Kaiārahi Team is here to connect you with the right people by forming a bridge between health and social services. This bridge will help the team to support whānau between agencies and providers ensuring they don’t get lost in the system.

As connectors, the team have easy access to Iwi providers, Non-Government Agencies, and other community providers, so have the skills and means to provide adequate support to whānau on their journey to a healthier and happier life.

The Kaiārahi Team are based at the WRHN office and can also be found at the Whanganui MSD office on Tuesday's and Thursday's.  Access to their services can be self-made or via either a health professional or an MSD caseworker.

If you are stuck or would like any type of advocacy support or assistance, you can contact Awhi Haenga at WRHN on 06 348 0109 ext 718.
