East Coast Nominations Sought For Whānau Ora Regional Group

Te Tairāwhiti (East Coast) Regional Leadership Group (RLG) for Whānau Ora is calling for nominations from the northern East Coast communities.

Thirty-four provider collectives involving more than 180 health and social service providers from throughout the country are working to develop and deliver Whānau Ora – an inclusive approach to providing services and opportunities to all New Zealand families in need.

A total of 10 RLGs provide high quality advice to the Whānau Ora Governance Group, lead strategic change for Whānau Ora within their region, foster excellent communications and relationships, and provide representation of Whānau Ora at a local and regional level. They also have an important role in considering funding proposals to support whānau.

Te Tairāwhiti (East Coast) RLG is encouraging nominations from the communities of Te Araroa, Tikitiki and Ruatōria. The successful candidate will have a primary interest in promoting the wellbeing of whānau within the region of Te Tairāwhiti and will possess a sufficient mix of the following skills and experience:

• Experience/expertise in the health, social, economic and cultural sectors.
• Experience in working with whānau collectives and in whānau development at a community level.
• Knowledge of issues facing whānau and service provision to whānau within the region.
• An understanding of local service provision issues and accountability requirements.
• Experience in advocating for and leading change within communities.
• Proven relationship management skills and a wide range of whānau/community networks.
• Knowledge of other initiatives occurring within the region that may impact on, or have synergies with, Whānau Ora service provision.

Te Tairāwhiti (East Coast) RLG members include Lois McCarthy-Robinson (chair); Owen Lloyd; Manu Caddie; Te Pare Meihana; Dr Apirana Mahuika; and Hine Flood.

Information about the nomination process is available from the website of Te Puni Kokiri – www.tpk.govt.nz – or by contacting the secretariat of Te Tairāwhiti (East Coast) RLG at johnina.symes@tpk.govt.nz.

The closing date for nominations is 5.00 pm on Friday 2 November 2012.
