Review of Whanau Ora will highlight what works well

Labour's review of Whanau Ora will identify models that work well throughout the country, what best practice looks like and how this will be used to frame new policy, says Māori Affairs Spokesperson Nanaia Mahuta.

“Māori Service providers and organisations have already started these collaborations that improve outcomes for whanau and Labour recognises that positive gains that have been made. However not all Government agencies are committed to this approach.

”Labour wants to take forward the essential parts of what works into future thinking about the Whanau Ora.

“No amount of mischief making will detract from our intention to provide a suite of policies across the whole of Government that will tackle inequality and poverty and improve opportunities for Māori under a Labour Government.

“We are committed to a productive economy that grows jobs in the regions, provides homes for our whanau and better opportunities for our children and young people, says Nanaia Mahuta.

“This focus can only enhance the objectives of Māori service providers who want to make a difference in the lives of so many vulnerable whanau that want to get ahead.”
