Child & Family Services

Tūāpapa Māmā & Pēpi Hub Services

Tūāpapa Māmā and Pēpi Services support the whānau to ensure everyone—pēpi, māmā, pāpā, nanny, and koro—is provided with the right tools to help them overcome life’s challenges.

Challenges can include parenting, breastfeeding, financial budgeting, nutrition, mental health, family health, dental, management of chronic conditions (diabetes, cardiovascular, etc.), advocacy support when dealing with government agencies, and many more.

The service is comfortably nestled at the cosy whānau hub, located at Pāpāmoa, where whānau have a safe space to discuss where they need support, rest, learn, and nourish their tinana and hinengaro.
