Welcome to Whakatū Te Korowai Manaakitanga Trust


Hei Whakatipuranga / Towards the Next Generation
Ka tukua e tatou nga ratonga tuturu kia pai ake mo nga whānau I tenei hapori.
(We will deliver services that make a positive difference to whānau in the community)


Ka mahi tahi Te Korowai Trust ki te hanga wa kia puta ai, mo te painga o nga whānau.
(Te Korowai Trust will work collaboratively to create opportunities for improved whānau well-being.)


"Ma te mahi ka mohio, ma te mohio ka marama,
ma te marama ka matatau, ma te matatau ka ora"

Through practice comes awareness, through awareness comes understanding,
through understanding comes knowledge, and through knowledge comes wellbeing.


Trust moto is: “Tatou Tatou” which means this service is inclusive to all people and all ages and race.

Whakatu Te Korowai Manaakitanga Trust is unique in the incorporation of Māori values and practices, and operates within a framework of best business and professional practices. This ‘best of both worlds’ approach to service delivery, has proven extremely successful at reaching the target population group of Māori and other ethnicity whānau in the Nelson/Tasman communities. 


This is achieved by addressing the needs of the whole whānau, ensuring that health, social, physical and spiritual needs are met. Past experience has proven this is a successful way of ensuring that services provided are appropriate, individualised and delivered in a manner sensitive to participant needs.


Within Te Korowai Trust’s holistic approach we offer; building financial capability, family mentoring skills based learning, social workers, Kairangahau ā-Whānau and Whānau Ora Navigator assistance.  


Te Korowai Trust offers a mobile service which reduces the barrier of accessing help and allows clients to feel comfortable in their own home.  We have the ability to travel throughout the Nelson region from Atawhai to Hope although clients are welcome to come to us outside of these boundaries.


While our services are targeted at Māori, our motto is 'tatou tatou' which means we are open to and help all people.
